Unfortunately this never happened despite the fact it was “decided” on
in the past leading to the current inconsistencies in the tree.

The question is also, what happens during the upstreaming effort from
the Chromium OS commits? It looks like, for example, NVIDIA has its own
license headers.

In the past Ron also disagreed on changing headers by Samsung – taken
from U-Boot I think – saying their lawyers drafted those and therefore
it should stay that way.

Maybe a vote like in *Unifying IO accessor macros* [2] should be done.
