Final licence for the Bewan ADSL modem drivers.

Hello, ...

Well, Bewan finally release version 0.4.2 of their drivers with the
following licence :

I think this is ok now, and i uploaded the package to non-free.

It is GPLed, and the special exception allows to link with the non-free
library as well as distributing the non-free library with GPLed work,
which should satisfy all problems regarding the inclusion of this
package into non-free, that is until we kick non-free out of our archives :).

Thanks for your help on this,


Sven Luther
