I think this would be a good move for interoperability, so that GPLv3
projects (e.g. SeaBIOS) may take code from coreboot where needed (e.g.
device drivers). I'm strictly talking about listing the preferred
license; it's still up to contributors whether they want v2 or v2+.

[1] Listed GPLv2+ as preferred, but it was recently changed without any
explanation. Stefan, do you have more details on that?
