I'm not sure about the meaning of

because there isn't link or holder to this code. I search on the web but
not found anything, for now...

what do you think of it?


I don't think there's much to worry about. The file is just a bunch of constants, so there's not much originality involved. And it's quite possible that the 'sample code' was GPL. Because we don't know, we're going to have to take the author's word for it. Of course you can always try to contact the author(s) (or LKML) to make sure.
