Description

As described in #12848, changes made to bhyve in illumos are dual licensed under both the upstream BSD license as well as the CDDL. Since that often means adding a CDDL header to already-BSD-licensed files in our repository, we should make it clear in the source what that means. This likely means a README.license in the source directories in question to clarify the situation for readers.

This change does not result in any modification to files installed into the proto area or in generated packages. It is simply documentation for those consuming the source code.
