[PATCH 4/4] ARM: dts: vf610-twr: relicense vf610-twr.dts under GPLv2/X11

GPLv2-only devicetrees make reuse difficult for software components
licensed under a different license.
The consensus is that a GPL/X11 dual-license should allow all necessary
uses, so relicense the vf610-twr.dts file to this combination.
CCs were acquired using (updated some email addresses):
