Subject[PATCH] PCI: Add SPDX GPL-2.0+ to replace implicit GPL v2 or later statement
From: Bjorn Helgaas <>

7441b0627e22 ("s390/pci: PCI hotplug support via SCLP") added
s390_pci_hpc.c, which included this license information:


Based on "git show 7441b0627e22:include/linux/module.h", that "GPL" string
means "GPL v2 or later":

* "GPL" [GNU Public License v2 or later]

0729dcf24832 ("s390: hotplug: make pci_hpc explicitly non-modular")
subsequently replaced the MODULE_LICENSE() with a "License: GPL" comment.

Add SPDX GPL-2.0+ and remove the "License: GPL" comment, relying on the
assertion in b24413180f56 ("License cleanup: add SPDX GPL-2.0 license
identifier to files with no license") that the SPDX identifier may be used
instead of the full boilerplate text.
