I am in any way expert in licensing, but the above seems to be
/* SPDX-License-Identifier: (GPL-2.0 OR MIT) */
At least this is what I see at [1] for MIT.
Could you please tell which license(s) as listed at [1]
would be appropriate for Xen drivers in terms of how it is
expected to appear in the kernel code, e.g. expected
SPDX-License-Identifier?

Thank you,
