Did you read the COPYING file of the kernel source tree? I'm pretty sure it states "or later" in the text. Therefore, I believe that my changes to the headers are alright.


Why subject yourself to all these questions about changing the copyright messages that the original authors put in there?

Would it be a problem for you to leave them intact?

I think you would have better luck splitting you patches like this:

1) A set that changes the code and only adds your own copyright for files where you do major work.

2) A set that removes other people's copyright text.

Applying #1 should then be a no-brainer.

#2 might be more difficult, but if you were persistent, you might eventually get it merged.
