This patch adds SPDX license tag to pmdinfogen files.

These files are originally drived from kernel.
They are being used as binary tool to support internal
build.

This patch requires license exception approval from
DPDK Technical Board and Governing Board.

GPL tools remain exceptions according to the Governing Board.
I will drop the addition of tools in "not exceptions" list.

The pmdinfogen exception was approved by the Governing Board on 12/18/2019.
