SubjectRe: [PATCH v2] USB: add SPDX identifiers to all remaining files in drivers/usb/
Hi!

as you said in some other email... this stands out a bit too
much. What about using normal c comments, and put it near the original
license text? It is not exactly the most important thing...

Or maybe near the MODULE_LICENSE, so the two don't get out of sync?
