A precision here :
export the license GPL. Looking at the strings in the object file, I
can find :
author=Linux Media Team
description=Driver Interface to the DSP and Slic
This binary is included in libosdep.o, that is included in dspvoice.o
and not adi_voice_mod.o

I send my mail today.

The kernel source code : rg-linux-2.4-mips_4.0.29_src.ejpkg,
The rg-linux-2.4-mips_4.0.29_src.ejpkg code contains some Makefile and
define for supporting vendor arch.
The lexra rg-vendor-lexra_4.0.29_lx4189.ejpkg code : as you said the
file without header could be considered as GPL.
The file from rg-vendor-adi-kernel_4.0.29_src.ejpkg with no header.
Others are the one with adi and jungo license. After a deeper look
some maybe aren't directly included in the kernel.
With these files, they make an archive adi6843.a and in
arch/mips/Makefile, they have :
CORE_FILES += arch/mips/adi/6843/adi6843.a
SUBDIRS += arch/mips/adi/6843
LOADADDR += 0x80010000
I don't know if the CORE_FILES rules include all the object files or
only the one needed.
I will try to do a list of the GPL packages from jungo and extract a
GPL tree we can put on the ftp.
PS : jungo release a new sdk with linux 2.6 support.
