ITP fsmark - bug 655224: License restriction for lib_timing.c DFSG compliant?

I was not sure whether to Cc debian-devel. I didn't do it, cause everyone can 
lookup the current state at the ITP. Please add it to Cc for your answer when 
you find it approbiate.


On packaging fs_mark I found

  8  * Copyright (c) 2000 Carl Staelin.
  9  * Copyright (c) 1994-1998 Larry McVoy.
 10  * Distributed under the FSF GPL with
 11  * additional restriction that results may published only if
 12  * (1) the benchmark is unmodified, and
 13  * (2) the version in the sccsid below is included in the report.
 14  * Support for this development by Sun Microsystems is gratefully 

in lib_timing.c.

Is this restriction DFSG compliant?

What are the alternatives when it isn't?

I will hold back further packaging efforts until further notice.

The current state is at:

Vcs-Git: git://git.debian.org/collab-maint/fsmark.git

Vcs-Browser: http://git.debian.org/?p=collab-maint/fsmark.git;a=summary

It already builds a package, but packaging is not finished for review yet.
