COPYING: create a new file with points to the Kernel license files
With the addition of SPDX patchset, the contents of COPYING file is now duplicated at two other files under LICENSE: LICENSES/preferred/GPL-2.0 LICENSES/exceptions/Linux-syscall-note It is easy to check that the contents of the licence written on those files are identical with COPYING using: $ diff -upr COPYING LICENSES/preferred/GPL-2.0 $ diff -upr COPYING LICENSES/exceptions/Linux-syscall-note|less Also, a new file was added, with describes how SPDX should work at the Kernel source files: Documentation/process/license-rules.rst Instead fo having it copying the contents of two files, and not even mentioning the third one, replace it by a file whose content points to the other tree files, preserving the Kernel's license. Adjust license-rules.rst accordingly. Please notice that this file preserves the Kernel license as is, without any changes.
