+OPENJDK ASSEMBLY EXCEPTION
+
+The OpenJDK source code made available by Sun at openjdk.java.net and
+openjdk.dev.java.net ("OpenJDK Code") is distributed under the terms of the
+GNU General Public License <http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/gpl.html> version 2
+only ("GPL2"), with the following clarification and special exception.
+
+ Linking this OpenJDK Code statically or dynamically with other code
+ is making a combined work based on this library. Thus, the terms
+ and conditions of GPL2 cover the whole combination.
+
+ As a special exception, Sun gives you permission to link this
+ OpenJDK Code with certain code licensed by Sun as indicated at
+ http://openjdk.java.net/legal/exception-modules-2007-05-08.html
+ ("Designated Exception Modules") to produce an executable,
+ regardless of the license terms of the Designated Exception Modules,
+ and to copy and distribute the resulting executable under GPL2,
+ provided that the Designated Exception Modules continue to be
+ governed by the licenses under which they were offered by Sun.
+
+As such, it allows licensees and sublicensees of Sun's GPL2 OpenJDK Code to
+build an executable that includes those portions of necessary code that Sun
+could not provide under GPL2 (or that Sun has provided under GPL2 with the
+Classpath exception). If you modify or add to the OpenJDK code, that new
+GPL2 code may still be combined with Designated Exception Modules if the
+new code is made subject to this exception by its copyright holder.
