bitkeeper revision 1.259.2.7 (3f0c428fGYxQAV_56B2hOOjYs1PF0A)

Port a bunch of network drivers for low-quality NICS (which will incur extra copying overheads within Xen). But will allow us to work on a wider range of systems at least.

13 Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license
14 document, but changing it is not allowed.
16 Preamble
18 The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to
19 share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public License is intended
20 to guarantee your freedom to share and change free software--to make sure
21 the software is free for all its users. This General Public License applies
22 to most of the Free Software Foundation's software and to any other program
23 whose authors commit to using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation
24 software is covered by the GNU Library General Public License instead.) You
25 can apply it to your programs, too.
27 When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our
28 General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the freedom
29 to distribute copies of free software (and charge for this service if you
30 wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you want it, that you
31 can change the software or use pieces of it in new free programs; and that
32 you know you can do these things.
34 To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone to
35 deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights. These
36 restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you distribute
37 copies of the software, or if you modify it.
39 For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or
40 for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that you have. You
41 must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And you
42 must show them these terms so they know their rights.
44 We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and (2)
45 offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy, distribute
46 and/or modify the software.
48 Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain that
49 everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free software. If
50 the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we want its
51 recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so that any
52 problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original authors'
53 reputations.
55 Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software patents. We
56 wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free program will
57 individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the program
58 proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any patent must be
59 licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
61 The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and modification
62 follow.
64 TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
66 0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains a notice
67 placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed under the
68 terms of this General Public License. The "Program", below, refers to any
69 such program or work, and a "work based on the Program" means either the
70 Program or any derivative work under copyright law: that is to say, a
71 work containing the Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or with
72 modifications and/or translated into another language. (Hereinafter,
73 translation is included without limitation in the term "modification".)
74 Each licensee is addressed as "you".
76 Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
77 covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of running
78 the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program is covered
79 only if its contents constitute a work based on the Program (independent
80 of having been made by running the Program). Whether that is true depends
81 on what the Program does.
83 1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's source code
84 as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and
85 appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice and
86 disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the notices that refer to this
87 License and to the absence of any warranty; and give any other recipients
88 of the Program a copy of this License along with the Program.
90 You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and you
91 may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
93 2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion of it,
94 thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and distribute such
95 modifications or work under the terms of Section 1 above, provided that
96 you also meet all of these conditions:
98 * a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices stating
99 that you changed the files and the date of any change.
101 * b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in
102 whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any part
103 thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third parties
104 under the terms of this License.
106 * c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively when
107 run, you must cause it, when started running for such interactive
108 use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an announcement
109 including an appropriate copyright notice and a notice that there is
110 no warranty (or else, saying that you provide a warranty) and that
111 users may redistribute the program under these conditions, and
112 telling the user how to view a copy of this License. (Exception: if
113 the Program itself is interactive but does not normally print such
114 an announcement, your work based on the Program is not required to
115 print an announcement.)
117 These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If identifiable
118 sections of that work are not derived from the Program, and can be
119 reasonably considered independent and separate works in themselves, then
120 this License, and its terms, do not apply to those sections when you
121 distribute them as separate works. But when you distribute the same
122 sections as part of a whole which is a work based on the Program, the
123 distribution of the whole must be on the terms of this License, whose
124 permissions for other licensees extend to the entire whole, and thus to
125 each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
127 Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
128 your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
129 exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
130 collective works based on the Program.
132 In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
133 with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of a
134 storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under the
135 scope of this License.
137 3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it, under
138 Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of Sections
139 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
141 * a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source
142 code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2
143 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
145 * b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three years,
146 to give any third party, for a charge no more than your cost of
147 physically performing source distribution, a complete machine-
148 readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be distributed
149 under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily
150 used for software interchange; or,
152 * c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer to
153 distribute corresponding source code. (This alternative is allowed
154 only for noncommercial distribution and only if you received the
155 program in object code or executable form with such an offer, in
156 accord with Subsection b above.)
158 The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
159 making modifications to it. For an executable work, complete source code
160 means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
161 associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to control
162 compilation and installation of the executable. However, as a special
163 exception, the source code distributed need not include anything that is
164 normally distributed (in either source or binary form) with the major
165 components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the operating system on which
166 the executable runs, unless that component itself accompanies the
167 executable.
169 If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering access
170 to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent access to copy
171 the source code from the same place counts as distribution of the source
172 code, even though third parties are not compelled to copy the source
173 along with the object code.
175 4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program except as
176 expressly provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise to copy,
177 modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is void, and will
178 automatically terminate your rights under this License. However, parties
179 who have received copies, or rights, from you under this License will not
180 have their licenses terminated so long as such parties remain in full
181 compliance.
183 5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not signed
184 it. However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or distribute
185 the Program or its derivative works. These actions are prohibited by law
186 if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by modifying or
187 distributing the Program (or any work based on the Program), you
188 indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and all its terms and
189 conditions for copying, distributing or modifying the Program or works
190 based on it.
192 6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
193 Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
194 original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
195 these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further restrictions
196 on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein. You are not
197 responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to this License.
199 7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
200 infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
201 conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
202 otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
203 excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot distribute
204 so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this License and
205 any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may not
206 distribute the Program at all. For example, if a patent license would
207 not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by all those who
208 receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then the only way you
209 could satisfy both it and this License would be to refrain entirely from
210 distribution of the Program.
212 If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under any
213 particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to apply
214 and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other circumstances.
216 It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
217 patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
218 such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
219 integrity of the free software distribution system, which is implemented
220 by public license practices. Many people have made generous contributions
221 to the wide range of software distributed through that system in
222 reliance on consistent application of that system; it is up to the
223 author/donor to decide if he or she is willing to distribute software
224 through any other system and a licensee cannot impose that choice.
226 This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to be
227 a consequence of the rest of this License.
229 8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in certain
230 countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the original
231 copyright holder who places the Program under this License may add an
232 explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding those countries,
233 so that distribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus
234 excluded. In such case, this License incorporates the limitation as if
235 written in the body of this License.
237 9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of
238 the General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will be
239 similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
240 address new problems or concerns.
242 Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program
243 specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
244 later version", you have the option of following the terms and
245 conditions either of that version or of any later version published by
246 the Free Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version
247 number of this License, you may choose any version ever published by the
248 Free Software Foundation.
250 10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free programs
251 whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author to ask
252 for permission. For software which is copyrighted by the Free Software
253 Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes make
254 exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals of
255 preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and
256 of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
258 NO WARRANTY
260 11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
261 FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN
262 OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES
263 PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER
264 EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED
265 WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE
266 ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH
267 YOU. SHOULD THE PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL
268 NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
270 12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
271 WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
272 REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR
273 DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL
274 DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM
275 (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED
276 INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF
277 THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR
278 OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
280 END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
282 How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
284 If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
285 possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it free
286 software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
288 To do so, attach the following notices to the program. It is safest to
289 attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively convey the
290 exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least the "copyright"
291 line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
293 one line to give the program's name and an idea of what it does.
294 Copyright (C) yyyy name of author
296 This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify it
297 under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by the Free
298 Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or (at your option)
299 any later version.
301 This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful, but WITHOUT
302 ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of MERCHANTABILITY or
303 FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. See the GNU General Public License for
304 more details.
306 You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License along with
307 this program; if not, write to the Free Software Foundation, Inc., 59
308 Temple Place - Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111-1307, USA.
310 Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
312 If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like this when
313 it starts in an interactive mode:
315 Gnomovision version 69, Copyright (C) year name of author Gnomovision comes
316 with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type 'show w'. This is free
317 software, and you are welcome to redistribute it under certain conditions;
318 type 'show c' for details.
320 The hypothetical commands 'show w' and 'show c' should show the appropriate
321 parts of the General Public License. Of course, the commands you use may be
322 called something other than 'show w' and 'show c'; they could even be
323 mouse-clicks or menu items--whatever suits your program.
325 You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your
326 school, if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if
327 necessary. Here is a sample; alter the names:
329 Yoyodyne, Inc., hereby disclaims all copyright interest in the program
330 'Gnomovision' (which makes passes at compilers) written by James Hacker.

335 This General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into
336 proprietary programs. If your program is a subroutine library, you may
337 consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with the
338 library. If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Library General Public
339 License instead of this License.
