Libvirt would like to use the nproc module to determine the number of
available processors.  This module is currently LGPLv3+, but libvirt
would require LGPLv2+; it can be argued that since
sysconf(_SC_NPROCESSORS_CONF) is provided by glibc (LGPLv2+), the real
value in this module is merely in providing portability to a variety of
platforms, rather than providing an algorithm that should be limited to
newer libraries.  I'm fine with my lone contribution being relicensed as
LGPLv2+; I'm cc'ing all other contributors:
