[coreboot] Coreboot wiki: what license is the content under?

The wiki is mostly dead, its data mostly useless. Whatever we'll build
as its replacement can start with a new, clear license system, and
wiki content is either relicensed by its author and then ported over
or deleted/rewritten.

I'd go with CC-BY for the simple reason that documentation acts as
marketing material which should see the widest distribution possible.
People who dislike licensing their content that freely can publish
elsewhere and set up a (CC-BY'd) link.

In any case, we can (and IMHO should) decouple the discussions about
dealing with current content and about future licensing.
