In preparation for submitting code upstream, I've just adjusted all the
copyright notices on PPC files in the xenppc-unstable.hg tree. In most
cases, the format just needed to change slightly. Please ensure that all
new files contain proper attribution. Sample:
 * This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify
 * it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
 * the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or
 * (at your option) any later version.
 * This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
 * but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
 * GNU General Public License for more details.
 * You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License
 * along with this program; if not, write to the Free Software
 * Foundation, 51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA  02110-1301, USA.
 * Copyright (C) IBM Corp. 2005
 * Authors: Hollis Blanchard <hollisb@xxxxxxxxxx>

When making substantial modifications to a file, try to remember to add
to the listed years and authors.

The following PPC files were based on other files that had no explicit
copyright notices:
        xen/arch/ppc/bitops.c (Linux)
        xen/arch/ppc/ppc64/asm-offsets.c (Xen x86)
        xen/include/asm-ppc/mach-default/irq_vectors.h (Xen x86)
        xen/include/asm-ppc/mpic.h (Linux)
        xen/include/asm-ppc/ppc64/string.h (Linux)
        xen/include/asm-ppc/types.h (Xen x86)
Of course, there are other files we borrowed as well, but those have
proper attribution in them (e.g. xen/arch/ppc/mpic.c).

I find it somewhat amusing that the FSF has moved, so their address,
which is present in the GPL boilerplate in every file, had to change.
