I'm not a lawyer but following is my analysis
AFAICT only example kernel is under GPL (v2 to be precise) the rest is
either custom license, unclaimed copyright or non-copyrightable.
IMO multiboot specification should be FDL with cover text "Multiboot

It's better IIRC not to have any cover texts or invariant sections if we have a choice. If we have any, then it doesn't fall within the Debian Free Software Guidelines and Debian et al. will be annoyed and not distribute it as much. (Or we could use GPL3 or CC-BY-SA for the specification... or has the FSF produced any revisions of the FDL recently? I forget)
