These two files seem to have originated from GPL code, but there is no
indication that they are available under the MIT/X11 license.
There is a comment in these files:
/* kbd rate stuff based on kbdrate.c from Rik Faith <email@example.com> et.al.
* from util-linux-2.9t package */
The file kbdrate.c in package util-linux-2.9 is under the GPL.
lnx_io.c is no longer shipped; only lnx_kbd.c, which has been moved to the kbd
Sorry about the phenomenal bug spam, guys. Adding xorg-team@ to the QA contact so bugs don't get lost in future.
Copyright notice by Rik Faith is now reproduced in the file in xf86-input-keyboard.
Do we really want GPL code in the xorg source tree?
Maybe not a problem for Linux, but the sco and usl kbd files indicate they
are based on lnx_kbd.c. Are those files infected with GPL?
There may be others...
