I commend you for using license ids here. But there is an issue with
your attempt to use the latest and greatest license ids from SPDX:
GPL-2.0-only is not a documented license id in our doc [1]
Until this is updated (help welcomed including patching a few 10K+
files) , this should be GPL-2.0 instead to avoid confusion and keep
things homogeneous and tidy.

FYI, using only the doc as the reference was brought forward by
Russell King and Christoph Hellwig and in particular with this:

Based on this, Thomas Gleixner updated the doc alright following this
important point. So, in case of doubt the doc should be the reference
for this and nothing else. And if there are issue with the doc, then
we can fix it with a patch ;)
