hopefully it will stay this way.

Anyone know what license I must pick for this?
3-clause BSD? 4-clause BSD? (from Copyright file it lists 4 terms)

4-clause BSD is incompatible with the GPL, and thus cannot be used for
qemu.  (2-clause and 3-clause are okay, though).

Indeed, this is the advertising clause of the 4-clause BSD, which
renders this license unsuitable for use with GPL projects.

Ow. Ok, then I just leave it as-is, github already showing this text as license,
and while qemu as project can't use this firmware - users still can.

Also, there seems to be another pmon branch on github:
https://github.com/jcowgill/pmon-loongson - but I haven't tested it.

And also two more linked from here:

Probably there are even more but none with an easy to build pmon.bin for fulong2e board I know of, or one that matches the pmon_2e.bin banary available which seems to be the original firmware of the board. Therefore providing a tested firmware from QEMU would simplify user's life trying this board. So at least we could gather this info somewhere on qemu.org.


Morever, what lives in

seems to be THIRD branch of pmon, at least radeon-specific file is different,
and apparently solved bug I solved independently. (there was confusion between 
Bytes per pixel and Bits per pixel)
