Licensing: gdb/osf-share/ is GPL-incompatible


Matej Cepl has found gdb/osf-share/ contains "BSD with advertising" license:

This code is GPL-incompatible according to:

Therefore gdb/+bfd/ etc. should contain an exception for its GPLv3+:

Found this gdb/osf-share code is referenced only by:
hpux-thread.o: $(srcdir)/hpux-thread.c
	$(COMPILE) -I$(srcdir)/osf-share -I$(srcdir)/osf-share/HP800 \
		-I/usr/include/dce $(srcdir)/hpux-thread.c

Or do I miss something obvious?  IANAL (Matej Cepl is).
