The case easy is when it doesn't have an email address, you take the
code as part of the kernel. GPLv2 and that's it.

At the beginning i was suggesting that if the copyright holder has an
email, we should write, but that practice may make us spend time and
trouble. So is optional (I guess), the best is consider it as part of
the kernel GPLv2 and continue.

Thanks for helping :)
