This patch removes the dual keyword from dual license
definitions to avoid confusion. As the *dual* word is
not required to be added SPDX license.

Makes sense to me, but probably needs Board legal approval

Hi Bruce,
	Will you please check it with Trishan and DPDK GB board?

DPDK license indicates the correct license types in: 
http://git.dpdk.org/dpdk/tree/license/README

However in exception files we added the keyword "Dual" - which is unnecessary and not part of standard SPDX definition. 

I hope they have no objection in getting it corrected.

Regards,
Hemant
