COPYING: state that all contributions really are covered by this file

Explicitly state that all contributions to the kernel source tree
really are covered under this COPYING file in case someone thought
otherwise. Lawyers love to be pedantic, even more so than software
engineers at times, and this sentence makes them sleep easier.

Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
infrastructure for it.

Let it rip!
