I included the fuse_kernel.h files from version 2.2.1 and 2.5.3 in my
davfs2-package. Now I want to host davfs2 on savannah.gnu.org and they
think the copyright notice is not clear enough. It does not mention the
version of the GPL and they would prefer a "full copyright notice".
Would you mind if I replaced it with this text (for version 2.5.3; for
version 2.2.1 it would be changed accordingly):

Would "either version 2 of the License, or (at your option) any later
version." be ok or should it be version 2 only? Of course the full text
of GPL v2 is included in the package.
Thanks in advance

my request concerning the copyright of kernel headers is obsolete. I
will drop support for kernel version 5 (as you suggested long ago) and
as for kernel version 7 I can use the BSD license of fuse_kernel.h.
