License Notes

This is a modified version of the BSD license, found in src/libplpa/plpa_map.c in the PLPA codebase.

Originally, it contained an additional legal action restriction clause which made the license non-free, but AMD agreed to drop that clause in January 2010. The clause of the license which addresses export control makes this license GPL Incompatible. AMD was advised of this, but was unable to drop this clause as well.
