commit ca623970258a05d758d68da187f0aaf20f8686ac

    alfred: Switch packet.h license to MIT
    
    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").
