Switch to the LGPLv2.1+ license

Mail sent to all contributors on 2011-09-30:

Hi everybody,

Sakari made me realize today that the media-ctl project is still licensed
under the GPL v2+ license, while I would have sworn that we had switched to
LGPL a long time ago.

I would like to relicense the media-ctl project under the LGPL v2.1+, to allow
LGPL-compatible applications and libraries (such as libv4l for instance, or
its plugins) to link to libmediactl and libv4l2subdev.

As you all have submitted patches that are now included in the media-ctl
project, I'm requesting your permission to proceed with the license change.

Hi Laurent,

No problem for me. You can go ahead, if everyone else agrees of course.

Regards,
Sergio

I'm in favour of the change, actually I think it's next to mandatory for the
library to be useful in a way it was intended.

Cheers,

Changing the license is fine with me.

I have no objections.
But I didn't remember libudev exact license... Ah, okay, it's licensed
under LGPLv2.1+.
