Missing licensing information and/or sourcecode

Ahoi,

 

trying to package the AMD HSA Runtime.

 

First impression: Where's the sourcecode? The repositories on GitHub only contain random binaries.

(e.g. HSAFoundation/HSA-Drivers-Linux-AMD · GitHub and HSAFoundation/HSA-Runtime-AMD · GitHub )

I'd strongly prefer some sourcecode that can be properly audited and packaged ... but ok, this is an early Alpha, I'll be patient

 

Big problem:

 

The HSA-Drivers-Linux repository has either incomplete licensing information for the "libhsakmt.so.1" file, or is possibly a GPL violation.

 

The only licensing info is the "LICENSE" file which only has the GPL2 needed for the kernel.

 

The HSA-Runtime-AMD repository claims BSD 2-clause. Intuitively I'd assume that this should also apply to libhsakmt.so.1, but I'd strongly prefer an explicit license statement so that any doubt and misinterpretation is removed.

And sourcecode! Please
