License issue on linuximq


Hello everyone.

We are considering using in some product. The files are patches for Linux Kernel. But the license of this project seems a bit confusing. As stated in the README, the license is GPLv3+. GPLv3+ is not compatible with GPLv2 which means these patches should not be applied to Linux Kernel. But if you open the patches, you will find GPLv2 notice in there instead of GPLv3+. So can we just simply treat this project as a GPLv2’ed one? Thanks.
