Currently the header says 'SPDX-License-Identifier: GPL-2.0', which is
'GNU General Public License v2.0 only' according to 

  https://spdx.org/licenses/

So we can't use that with MODULE_LICENSE("GPL") which means 'GNU
General Public License v2.0 or later' . I don't have a strong
preference for either, but I'll go with the 'or later' part since that
seems to be more in favour ( shorter argument for the MODULE_LICENSE
macro ).
