Michael, would you relicense these test programs of yours? Nobody else
seems to have made copyrightable changes to these files.
These files are GPL, but carry the following exception:
* the C code (not assembly, mmx, ...) of this file can be used
* under the LGPL license too
The cleanest solution would likely be to split these files into ASM and
C parts. Then the ASM parts can be compiled conditional to CONFIG_GPL.
These files are GPL without exception. yuv2rgb_altivec.c was written by
Marc Hoffman, he also contributed some code under LGPL, I'm pretty
confident we could get him to relicense.
