The ISC license is considered as not recommended in "Linux kernel licensing rules". It should only be used for existing code or for importing code from a different project with that license.
Since we already use this license for the batman-adv related uapi headers, we should also use this for our packet.h. This fixes at the same time the SPDX license identifier which switched incorrectly to GPL-2.0 in commit ea81a05080bd ("alfred: Add SPDX license identifier above copyright header").
