Subject: [PATCH 20/20] Input: matrix-keymap - provide proper module license

commit 55220bb3e5f917dd5fee1153c612f9a83599f639 upstream.

The matrix-keymap module is currently lacking a proper module license,
add one so we don't have this module tainting the entire kernel.  This
issue has been present since commit 1932811f426f ("Input: matrix-keymap
- uninline and prepare for device tree support")
