>Checkpatch is sending too many warnings.

[Hemant] The base codes, which are coming from common area was not originally meant for Linux.
If we change the original starting code of it, the  the maintenance become very painful otherwise.

>But most importantly, the licensing has not been agreed in techboard and govboard.

 [Hemant] you are wrong here. Which license difference are you talking about? Standard licenses do not need techboard and govboard approval.
/* SPDX-License-Identifier: (BSD-3-Clause OR GPL-2.0) is the approved license. It have been used in DPDK since long. 
DPDK exception file states:
Note that following licenses are not exceptions:-
	- BSD-3-Clause
	- Dual BSD-3-Clause OR GPL-2.0
	- Dual BSD-3-Clause OR LGPL-2.1
	- GPL-2.0  (*Only for kernel code*)
Any base code which is shared among kernel and Userspace space - mostly likely will have this kind dual license only.
Note: you don't add "Dual" word while stating SPDX string - it is implicit. 

>Why dropping this codebase in DPDK instead of pulling it as a dependency?
[Hemant] >I don't like seeing DPDK becoming a pile of code duplicated from somewhere else.
[Hemant] We are not using the library as it is and making some serious changes in the generic library to suit the DPDK use-case.
So, it is not possible for us to use the *original* code of fmlib, which is public.

[Hemant] >I will drop this series from 20.08, waiting for a clear consensus.
[Hemant] Why? 
[Hemant] >Note: I don't remember having heard about such change before, especially not in the roadmap.
[Hemant] So anyone not publishing a roadmap - you will not accept features?
