Received a note the other day from the Linux Foundation governance board
for DPDK indicating that several files I have copyright on need to be
relicensed to be compliant with the DPDK licensing guidelines.  I have
some concerns with some parts of the request, but am not opposed to
other parts.  So, for those pieces that we are in consensus on, I'm
proposing that we change their license from BSD 2 clause to 3 clause.
I'm also updating the files to use the SPDX licensing scheme

Other SPDX headers use only one space after # or *,
and no empty line.

Also, SPDX should be on the first line (except for scripts):
	/* SPDX-License-Identifier: BSD-3-Clause

Please, let's take this opportunity to have consistent headers.
Thanks
