The "Developer's Certificate of Origin 1.1" in
Documentation/SubmittingPatches refers to "the open source license
indicated in the file", but there is no such indication.

However, it looks like most of the files in the repository don't
indicate which license applies.  So I guess the license in the COPYING
file (GPLv2) applies by default?  I'll re-send with the Signed-off-by

Perhaps SubmittingPatches should be updated to clarify what happens if
the file doesn't indicate which license applies to the file (see
example below).
