Just to note: this isn't technically a licence change at all.  The
entire kernel is covered by the system call exception and this file is
thus also covered.  It's really a simple tag change to allow tools
which parse uapi header files to recognise from the SPDX tags that this
is a kernel header to which the Linux-syscall-note applies.
