Ideally, the license terms of all files in the source tree should be
defined by such License Identifiers; in no case a file can contain
more than one such License Identifier list.
If a "SPDX-License-Identifier:" line references more than one Unique
License Identifier, then this means that the respective file can be
used under the terms of either of these licenses, i. e. with
SPDX-License-Identifier: GPL-2.0+ BSD-3-Clause
you can chose between GPL-2.0+ and BSD-3-Clause licensing.
We use the SPDX Unique License Identifiers here; these are available
at [2].
