ppp: Change copyright notices from ANU to me
This changes the copyright notices on the PPP code that I developed in the late 1990s from being copyright The Australian National University to copyright Paul Mackerras. I can do this as I have an acknowledgement in writing from the Head of the Computer Science Department at ANU (where I worked then) that ANU does not claim any intellectual property in this code. While I'm at it, change the copyright notice from BSD-style to GNU GPL like the rest of the kernel. Signed-off-by: Paul Mackerras <firstname.lastname@example.org> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <email@example.com>
