6 General Public License (GPL), a copy of which is attached at the end
7 of this notice. Note that the only valid version of the GPL as far as

12 Licensing Exceptions (the relaxed BSD-style license)
13 ----------------------------------------------------
15 For the convenience of users and those who are porting OSes to run as
16 Xen guests, certain files in this repository are not subject to the
17 GPL when distributed separately or included in software packages
18 outside this repository. Instead we specify a much more relaxed
19 BSD-style license. Affected files include the Xen interface headers
20 (xen/include/public/COPYING), and various drivers, support functions
21 and header files within the Linux sparse source trees. In all such
22 cases, license terms are stated at the top of the file or in a COPYING
23 file in the same directory. Note that _any_ file that is modified and
24 then distributed within a Linux kernel is still subject to the GNU GPL.

30 GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
31 Version 2, June 1991
33 Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
34 59 Temple Place, Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111-1307 USA
35 Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
36 of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
38 Preamble
40 The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
41 freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public
42 License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
43 software--to make sure the software is free for all its users. This
44 General Public License applies to most of the Free Software
45 Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to
46 using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
47 the GNU Library General Public License instead.) You can apply it to
48 your programs, too.
50 When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
51 price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
52 have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
53 this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
54 if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
55 in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.
57 To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
58 anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
59 These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
60 distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
62 For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
63 gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
64 you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
65 source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their
66 rights.
68 We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
69 (2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
70 distribute and/or modify the software.
72 Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
73 that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
74 software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
75 want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
76 that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
77 authors' reputations.
79 Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
80 patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
81 program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the
82 program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any
83 patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
85 The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
86 modification follow.
88 GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
89 TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
91 0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains
92 a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed
93 under the terms of this General Public License. The "Program", below,
94 refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"
95 means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law:
96 that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it,
97 either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
98 language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in
99 the term "modification".) Each licensee is addressed as "you".
101 Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
102 covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of
103 running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program
104 is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the
105 Program (independent of having been made by running the Program).
106 Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.
108 1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's
109 source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
110 conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
111 copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the
112 notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty;
113 and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License
114 along with the Program.
116 You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
117 you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
119 2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion
120 of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and
121 distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
122 above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
124 a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices
125 stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
127 b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in
128 whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any
129 part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third
130 parties under the terms of this License.
132 c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively
133 when run, you must cause it, when started running for such
134 interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an
135 announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a
136 notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide
137 a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
138 these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this
139 License. (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but
140 does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on
141 the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
143 These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If
144 identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
145 and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
146 themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
147 sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you
148 distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
149 on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
150 this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
151 entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
153 Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
154 your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
155 exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
156 collective works based on the Program.
158 In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
159 with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
160 a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
161 the scope of this License.
163 3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
164 under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
165 Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
167 a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
168 source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections
169 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
171 b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
172 years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your
173 cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
174 machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
175 distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
176 customarily used for software interchange; or,
178 c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer
179 to distribute corresponding source code. (This alternative is
180 allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
181 received the program in object code or executable form with such
182 an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
184 The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
185 making modifications to it. For an executable work, complete source
186 code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
187 associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
188 control compilation and installation of the executable. However, as a
189 special exception, the source code distributed need not include
190 anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
191 form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
192 operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
193 itself accompanies the executable.
195 If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
196 access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
197 access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
198 distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
199 compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
201 4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
202 except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt
203 otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
204 void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.
205 However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
206 this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
207 parties remain in full compliance.
209 5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
210 signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
211 distribute the Program or its derivative works. These actions are
212 prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by
213 modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
214 Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
215 all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
216 the Program or works based on it.
218 6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
219 Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
220 original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
221 these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further
222 restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
223 You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
224 this License.
226 7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
227 infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
228 conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
229 otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
230 excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot
231 distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
232 License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
233 may not distribute the Program at all. For example, if a patent
234 license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
235 all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
236 the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
237 refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
239 If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
240 any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
241 apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
242 circumstances.
244 It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
245 patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
246 such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
247 integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
248 implemented by public license practices. Many people have made
249 generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
250 through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
251 system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
252 to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
253 impose that choice.
255 This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
256 be a consequence of the rest of this License.
258 8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in
259 certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
260 original copyright holder who places the Program under this License
261 may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding
262 those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among
263 countries not thus excluded. In such case, this License incorporates
264 the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
266 9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
267 of the General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will
268 be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
269 address new problems or concerns.
271 Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program
272 specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
273 later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
274 either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
275 Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of
276 this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
277 Foundation.
279 10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
280 programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author
281 to ask for permission. For software which is copyrighted by the Free
282 Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes
283 make exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals
284 of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and
285 of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
287 NO WARRANTY
289 11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
290 FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN
291 OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES
292 PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED
293 OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
294 MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS
295 TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE
296 PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,
297 REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
299 12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
300 WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
301 REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,
302 INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING
303 OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
304 TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY
305 YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
306 PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
307 POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
309 END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
311 How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
313 If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
314 possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
315 free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
317 To do so, attach the following notices to the program. It is safest
318 to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
319 convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least
320 the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
322 <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>
323 Copyright (C) <year> <name of author>
325 This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify
326 it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
327 the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or
328 (at your option) any later version.
330 This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
331 but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
332 MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. See the
333 GNU General Public License for more details.
335 You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License
336 along with this program; if not, write to the Free Software
337 Foundation, Inc., 59 Temple Place, Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111-1307 USA
340 Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
342 If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like this
343 when it starts in an interactive mode:
345 Gnomovision version 69, Copyright (C) year name of author
346 Gnomovision comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'.
347 This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
348 under certain conditions; type `show c' for details.
350 The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the appropriate
351 parts of the General Public License. Of course, the commands you use may
352 be called something other than `show w' and `show c'; they could even be
353 mouse-clicks or menu items--whatever suits your program.
355 You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your
356 school, if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if
357 necessary. Here is a sample; alter the names:
359 Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest in the program
360 `Gnomovision' (which makes passes at compilers) written by James Hacker.
362 <signature of Ty Coon>, 1 April 1989
363 Ty Coon, President of Vice
365 This General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into
366 proprietary programs. If your program is a subroutine library, you may
367 consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with the
368 library. If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Library General
369 Public License instead of this License.
