[I've cc'ed the xorg mailing list, where this is a much more on-topic question
than the freedesktop general mailing list.]

Why do you care about the server license if you're writing an application (i.e.

We should probably delete lnx_kbd.c, both to give license clarity and to stop
people from thinking it's a useful driver to have on Linux systems any more.
If you're building the X server for a Linux box you want either the libinput
or evdev drivers instead of keyboard. If you're building for something without
a Linux kernel, then you won't be building the lnx_kbd.c file any way.
