Add SPDX license tag check based on the rules defined in
Documentation/process/license-rules.rst. To summarize, SPDX license tags
should be on the 1st line (or 2nd line in scripts) using the appropriate
comment style for the file type.

v6:
- Dropped script extension check and only look for #!/... on 1st line. A 
  text executable file was not reliable either.
- Support .awk and .tc which may or may not have a #!/.
- Fixed a typo in script "#!" regex and also match on first /.
- Add Greg's ack.
