It is wanted to use MTK spi bus driver with GPL-2.0 or MIT license.
But now it is only licensed as GPL-2.0, so re-license it as dual
MIT/GPL.

Given that these files have been licensed under the GPL only since 2015,
all changes contributed to it have only been licensed under the GPL as
well, so have you gotten approval for all of the contributors for this
change?

Can you please get your lawyer to also sign off on this license change
patch, so that we know that you have their approval for this incase
there are questions about it in the future?

thanks,
