+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.
