Yes, this is the new SPDX was (-only) but this is not yet the kernel
way and doc.

IMHO as long as the new SPDX "GPL-2.0-only" are not what is in the
kernel doc they should not be used and banned. Otherwise, we are
looking at creating an infinite source of confusion
therefore we should not add the -only license for now until they
become the kernel ways.
Joe already spotted drifts and I tried to fight these as much as I
could. One id for one license at a time is the only sane way to go.
