  Reiser4 is hereby licensed under the GNU General
  Public License version 2.

  Source code files that contain the phrase "licensing governed by
  COPYING" are "governed files" throughout this file.  Governed
  files are licensed under the GPL.  The portions of them owned by Hans
  Reiser, or authorized to be licensed by him, have been in the past,
  and likely will be in the future, licensed to other parties under
  other licenses.  If you add your code to governed files, and don't
  want it to be owned by Hans Reiser, put your copyright label on that
  code so the poor blight and his customers can keep things straight.
  All portions of governed files not labeled otherwise are owned by Hans
  Reiser, and by adding your code to it, widely distributing it to
  others or sending us a patch, and leaving the sentence in stating that
  licensing is governed by the statement in this file, you accept this.
  It will be a kindness if you identify whether Hans Reiser is allowed
  to license code labeled as owned by you on your behalf other than
  under the GPL, because he wants to know if it is okay to do so and put
  a check in the mail to you (for non-trivial improvements) when he
  makes his next sale.  He makes no guarantees as to the amount if any,
  though he feels motivated to motivate contributors, and you can surely
  discuss this with him before or after contributing.  You have the
  right to decline to allow him to license your code contribution other
  than under the GPL.

  Further licensing options are available for commercial and/or other
  interests directly from Hans Reiser:  If you interpret
  the GPL as not allowing those additional licensing options, you read
  it wrongly, and Richard Stallman agrees with me, when carefully read
  you can see that those restrictions on additional terms do not apply
  to the owner of the copyright, and my interpretation of this shall
  govern for this license.

  Finally, nothing in this license shall be interpreted to allow you to
  fail to fairly credit me, or to remove my credits such as by creating
  a front end that hides my credits from the user or renaming mkreiser4
  to mkyourcompanyfs or even just make_filesystem, without my
  permission, unless you are an end user not redistributing to others.
  If you have doubts about how to properly do that, or about what is
  fair, ask.  (Last I spoke with him Richard was contemplating how best
  to address the fair crediting issue in the next GPL version.)

  Also, a clustering file system built to work on top of this file
  system shall be considered a derivative work for the purposes of
  interpreting the GPL license granted herein.  Plugins are also to be
  considered derivative works.  Share code or pay money, we give you the
