LICENSES: Add note to CDDL-1.0 license that it should not be used

The only reason we have the CDDL-1.0 license text around is for some
dual-licensed files from virtualbox. New code should not use this license.

Add a note about this and change the example tag to be dual-licensed.

Do NOT use. The CDDL-1.0 is not GPL compatible. It may only be used for
dual-licensed files where the other license is GPL compatible.
If you end up using this it MUST be used together with a GPL2 compatible
license using "OR".
To use the Common Development and Distribution License 1.0 put the
following SPDX tag/value pair into a comment according to the placement
guidelines in the licensing rules documentation:
SPDX-License-Identifier: CDDL-1.0
SPDX-License-Identifier: ($GPL-COMPATIBLE-ID OR CDDL-1.0)
