Except the function was originally added by Mike Meissner.
As part of gcc.c.
Most of the substantive work on the function was done while it was in
the gcc/ directory, and the people doing the work presumably had gcc
copyright assignments, unless some sort of legal mistakes were being
made way back then.
The current notice is *broken*; it doesn't assert a license on its own
file. I'll put in whatever internally consistent version is believed to
be most legally correct. I have stated my reasons for believing that
"part of GCC" is correct provided drow has a GCC assignment (I'm pretty
sure he does).
