The infiniband code uses a variant of the OpenIB license. This license is BSD-2-Clause with the MIT disclaimer. The linux kernel uses this license extensively throughout the driver subsystem since 2005. Note that the OpenIB.org license is a true match to BSD-2-Clause. The license text was copied from: https://spdx.org/licenses/Linux-OpenIB.html#licenseText Signed-off-by: Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de> Reviewed-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@linuxfoundation.org> Reviewed-by: Kate Stewart <kstewart@linuxfoundation.org> Signed-off-by: Jonathan Corbet <corbet@lwn.net>
