Those new files still have LGPLv3-or-later notices in them:

GPLv3-based licenses may be OK for tests (libio/tst-fwrite-error.c)
but I think not for code that gets loaded from glibc to application
processes, unless a license exception applies (intl/plural.c).

There seems to be a similar problem with include/verify.h on the
t/verify.h branch.
