New 2-Clause License for NetBSD

The NetBSD Foundation (TNF) has formerly made the 2-clause BSD license the default license that covers most of the source code contributed to TNF. The NetBSD Foundation produces NetBSD, which is a UNIX-like, server-oriented operating system used across a wide variety of platforms.

The 2-clause BSD license follows:

/*-
Copyright (c) 2008 The NetBSD Foundation, Inc.
All rights reserved.

This code is derived from software contributed to The NetBSD Foundation by
