I think your patch highlighted a problem.
I agree with having a custom-licenses directory. But when this patch
is merged, we are going to have 2 different EULAs in different places.
And one is called Freescale-EULA
and the other EULA
So, I think it would be better to have EULA copied into
custom-licenses, and a better name should be used for both EULA files.
What do you think?
