Thanks, updated and committed last night, both to trunk and a backport
to 4.4 branch.

Some */configure files contain GPLv2+ license headers, but those come from
libtool (and are generated anyway).  Other than that:

Files copied from glibc, with LGPLv2.1+
README in soft-fp directory says that:

--cut here--
Except for t-softfp, conversions involving TImode and conversions involving
XFmode, the files in this directory are part of the GNU C Library, not part
of GCC. As described at <http://gcc.gnu.org/codingconventions.html>, changes
should be made to the GNU C Library and the changed files then imported
into GCC.
--cut here--


So these files are part of GCC, not GNU C Library.

gcc/config/soft-fp/fixsfti.c
gcc/config/soft-fp/extendxftf2.c
gcc/config/soft-fp/trunctfxf2.c
gcc/config/soft-fp/fixunsdfti.c
gcc/config/soft-fp/floattidf.c
gcc/config/soft-fp/floatuntitf.c
gcc/config/soft-fp/floatuntisf.c
gcc/config/soft-fp/floatuntidf.c
gcc/config/soft-fp/floattitf.c
gcc/config/soft-fp/fixunstfti.c
gcc/config/soft-fp/fixtfti.c
gcc/config/soft-fp/fixunssfti.c
gcc/config/soft-fp/floattisf.c
gcc/config/soft-fp/fixdfti.c

However, to be consistent with other files, these files claim to be part of GNU C Library. IMO, they should have the same licence, although strictly they are not part of glibc.


(Just wanted to point out, if these files need to be treated in some different way.)

Uros.
