Easily fixed (in git): 2010-2011

Is a git submodule sufficient (my distribution files are built with these
populated)? Perhaps with a separate mirror repository or branch, if including
it on Savannah's git is still necessary?

I don't see anything copyrightable in these files.

I'm not sure this is copyrightable. It consists of a hash of public data, a
hash of unknown data (unlikely anyone ever even kept track of what it was more
than a few minutes), a timestamp, and a public floating-point number.

On the other hand, I could probably safely replace it with zeros too...

This seems to have come from the Linux kernel include/linux/list.h. My email
to Linus 4 months ago regarding licensing seems to have gone ignored.
Additionally, I use code added to list.h by Rusty Russell and Arnaldo Carvalho
de Melo. However, it is, as self-described, a mere "simple double linked list
implementation" - so perhaps it's not eligible for copyright at all? Any
advice on resolving this one? :/

Very old, unused; will remove entirely.

Sigh, this looks like another GPL-2 mess. Will look into resolving it as well,
perhaps by simply replacing it with some standard option-parsing library...

The rest have been addressed in git.
