Usually I would fully agree, of course, but this is a special case.
AFAIR we decided to only "mark" files we copy from other projects (e.g.
the Linux kernel in this case) with a "taken from Linux" marker, but
we do not add a license header if there wasn't one in the Linux file.
The assumption is that all Linux code is GPLv2 unless stated otherwise.
So the license header in this file was not only superfluous but also
wrong, as it said "GPLv2-or-later".
