Description

Currently, the license of the documentation is CC-BY-SA-4.0 only. In case parts of the documentation are reused to generate content in Doxygen markup for the RTEMS source code documentation it would be nice to use a dual licensing CC-BY-SA-4.0 or BSD-2-Clause. I would like to update the copyright statements in some documentation files and change the license to:

.. SPDX-License-Identifier: CC-BY-SA-4.0 OR BSD-2-Clause

Unfortunately, this license change is not covered by #3053. I need permission form the contributors to add the BSD-2-Clause license as an alternative to the CC-BY-SA-4.0 to documentation parts which are included in the RTEMS sources.
