(I don't think this is correct, but see below.)

I don't think this is true (I am not a native speaker
though), imo it sounds as if it limits the usage.
It also may have been written with the intention of
being a little ambiguous.

But this doesn't matter: If the notice is not part of the
license, please ask AMD to remove it from the SDK
- the license gets much, much easier to understand
without the notice.

If you feel 100% safe about removing it, you could
offer the driver software from your github account
without the notice, this would also solve the header

I cannot comment on the acceptable number (or
size) of external headers.

Please remember not to top-post here, Carl Eugen
