Subject[patch V2 6/7] LICENSES: Add Linux-OpenIB license text
The infiniband code uses a variant of the OpenIB license. This license is
BSD-2-Clause with the MIT disclaimer. The linux kernel uses this license
extensively throughout the driver subsystem since 2005. Note that the
OpenIB.org license is a true match to BSD-2-Clause.

The license text was copied from:

https://spdx.org/licenses/Linux-OpenIB.html#licenseText
