softfloat: Clarify license statussf-relicensing
The code in the softfloat source files is under a mixture of licenses: the original code and many changes from QEMU contributors are under the base SoftFloat-2a license; changes from Stefan Weil and RedHat employees are GPLv2-or-later; changes from Fabrice Bellard are under the BSD license. Clarify this in the comments at the top of each affected source file, including a statement about the assumed licensing for future contributions, so we don't need to remember to ask patch submitters explicitly to pick a license.
