bzip2 and busybox: Incorrect LICENSE
The license for bzip2 is not quite BSD. I have an email out to the maintainer to see if we can utilize a common BSD license (or something else) however, for now, we should revert bzip2 back to a special license. As busybox also utilizes a lightly modified bzip2, this also effects busybox. Signed-off-by: Elizabeth Flanagan <> Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <>
