How to express dual licensing

I'm working on adding license information for Debian's Package Tracker. I just 
came upon a JavaScript file with this header:
* jQuery Cookie Plugin v1.3
* Copyright 2011, Klaus Hartl
* Dual licensed under the MIT or GPL Version 2 licenses.

As opposed to using web tables, I've been adding comments like
// @license magnet:?
xt=urn:btih:d3d9a9a6595521f9666a5e94cc830dab83b65699&dn=expat.txt Expat

to files until now. What would be the best way to handle this situation so 
LibreJS recognizes that it's free? My gut instinct is to just mark it as Expat 
since it's more permissive, and in fact I wonder what the dual licensing 
achieves in this case since it's GPL-compatible. Any hints?
