-the Covered Hardware Description. If the Larger Work is a combination of a 
186
-Covered Hardware Description with a work governed by a Secondary License, and 
187
-the Covered Hardware Description is not Incompatible With Secondary Licenses, 
188
-this License permits You to additionally distribute such Covered Hardware 
189

-
203
-You may choose to offer, and to charge a fee for, warranty, support,
204
-indemnity or liability obligations to one or more recipients of a Covered
205
-Hardware Description. However, You may do so only on Your own behalf, and not 
206
-on behalf of any Contributor. You must make it absolutely clear that any
207
-such warranty, support, indemnity, or liability obligation is offered by
208
-You alone, and You hereby agree to indemnify every Contributor for any
209
-liability incurred by such Contributor as a result of warranty, support,
210
-indemnity or liability terms You offer. You may include additional
211
-disclaimers of warranty and limitations of liability specific to any

222
-be placed in a text file included with all distributions of the Covered
223
-Hardware Description under this License. Except to the extent prohibited by 
224
-statute or regulation, such description must be sufficiently detailed for a
225
-recipient of ordinary skill to be able to understand it.
226
-
227
-5. Termination
228
---------------
229
-
230
-5.1. The rights granted under this License will terminate automatically
231
-if You fail to comply with any of its terms. However, if You become
232
-compliant, then the rights granted under this License from a particular
233
-Contributor are reinstated (a) provisionally, unless and until such
234
-Contributor explicitly and finally terminates Your grants, and (b) on an
235
-ongoing basis, if such Contributor fails to notify You of the
236
-non-compliance by some reasonable means prior to 60 days after You have
237
-come back into compliance. Moreover, Your grants from a particular
238
-Contributor are reinstated on an ongoing basis if such Contributor
239
-notifies You of the non-compliance by some reasonable means, this is the
240
-first time You have received notice of non-compliance with this License
241
-from such Contributor, and You become compliant prior to 30 days after
242
-Your receipt of the notice.
243
-
244
-5.2. If You initiate litigation against any entity by asserting a patent
245
-infringement claim (excluding declaratory judgment actions,
246
-counter-claims, and cross-claims) alleging that a Contributor Version
247
-directly or indirectly infringes any patent, then the rights granted to
248
-You by any and all Contributors for the Covered Hardware Description under 
249
-Section 2.1 of this License shall terminate.
250
-
251
-5.3. In the event of termination under Sections 5.1 or 5.2 above, all
252
-end user license agreements (excluding distributors and resellers) which
253
-have been validly granted by You or Your distributors under this License
254
-prior to termination shall survive termination.

+#### 2. Conveying Modified Versions.
49
+
50
+  If you modify a copy of the Library, and, in your modifications, a
51
+facility refers to a function or data to be supplied by an Application
52
+that uses the facility (other than as an argument passed when the
53
+facility is invoked), then you may convey a copy of the modified
54
+version:
55
+
56
+   a) under this License, provided that you make a good faith effort to
57
+   ensure that, in the event an Application does not supply the
58
+   function or data, the facility still operates, and performs
59
+   whatever part of its purpose remains meaningful, or
60
+
61
+   b) under the GNU GPL, with none of the additional permissions of
62
+   this License applicable to that copy.
63
+
64
+#### 3. Object Code Incorporating Material from Library Header Files.
65
+
66
+  The object code form of an Application may incorporate material from
67
+a header file that is part of the Library.  You may convey such object
68
+code under terms of your choice, provided that, if the incorporated
69
+material is not limited to numerical parameters, data structure
70
+layouts and accessors, or small macros, inline functions and templates
71
+(ten or fewer lines in length), you do both of the following:
72
+
73
+   a) Give prominent notice with each copy of the object code that the
74
+   Library is used in it and that the Library and its use are
75
+   covered by this License.
76
+
77
+   b) Accompany the object code with a copy of the GNU GPL and this license
78
+   document.
79
+
80
+#### 4. Combined Works.
81
+
82
+  You may convey a Combined Work under terms of your choice that,
83
+taken together, effectively do not restrict modification of the
84
+portions of the Library contained in the Combined Work and reverse
85
+engineering for debugging such modifications, if you also do each of
86
+the following:
87
+
88
+   a) Give prominent notice with each copy of the Combined Work that
89
+   the Library is used in it and that the Library and its use are
90
+   covered by this License.
91
+
92
+   b) Accompany the Combined Work with a copy of the GNU GPL and this license
93
+   document.
94
+
95
+   c) For a Combined Work that displays copyright notices during
96
+   execution, include the copyright notice for the Library among
97
+   these notices, as well as a reference directing the user to the
98
+   copies of the GNU GPL and this license document.
99
+
100
+   d) Do one of the following:
101
+
102
+   *0) Convey the Minimal Corresponding Source under the terms of this
103
+      License, and the Corresponding Application Code in a form
104
+      suitable for, and under terms that permit, the user to
105
+      recombine or relink the Application with a modified version of
106
+      the Linked Version to produce a modified Combined Work, in the
107
+      manner specified by section 6 of the GNU GPL for conveying
108
+      Corresponding Source.*
109
+
110
+   *1) Use a suitable shared library mechanism for linking with the
111
+       Library.  A suitable mechanism is one that (a) uses at run time
112
+       a copy of the Library already present on the user's computer
113
+       system, and (b) will operate properly with a modified version
114
+       of the Library that is interface-compatible with the Linked
115
+       Version.*
116
+
117
+   e) Provide Installation Information, but only if you would otherwise
118
+   be required to provide such information under section 6 of the
119
+   GNU GPL, and only to the extent that such information is
120
+   necessary to install and execute a modified version of the
121
+   Combined Work produced by recombining or relinking the
122
+   Application with a modified version of the Linked Version. (If
123
+   you use option 4d0, the Installation Information must accompany
124
+   the Minimal Corresponding Source and Corresponding Application
125
+   Code. If you use option 4d1, you must provide the Installation
126
+   Information in the manner specified by section 6 of the GNU GPL
127
+   for conveying Corresponding Source.)
128
+
129
+#### 5. Combined Libraries.
130
+
131
+  You may place library facilities that are a work based on the
132
+Library side by side in a single library together with other library
133
+facilities that are not Applications and are not covered by this
134
+License, and convey such a combined library under terms of your
135
+choice, if you do both of the following:
136
+
137
+   a) Accompany the combined library with a copy of the same work based
138
+   on the Library, uncombined with any other library facilities,
139
+   conveyed under the terms of this License.
140
+
141
+   b) Give prominent notice with the combined library that part of it
142
+   is a work based on the Library, and explaining where to find the
143
+   accompanying uncombined form of the same work.
144
+
145
+#### 6. Revised Versions of the GNU Lesser General Public License.
146
+
147
+  The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
148
+of the GNU Lesser General Public License from time to time. Such new
149
+versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may
150
+differ in detail to address new problems or concerns.
151
+
152
+  Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the
153
+Library as you received it specifies that a certain numbered version
154
+of the GNU Lesser General Public License "or any later version"
155
+applies to it, you have the option of following the terms and
156
+conditions either of that published version or of any later version
157
+published by the Free Software Foundation. If the Library as you
158
+received it does not specify a version number of the GNU Lesser
159
+General Public License, you may choose any version of the GNU Lesser
160
+General Public License ever published by the Free Software Foundation.
161
+
162
+  If the Library as you received it specifies that a proxy can decide
163
+whether future versions of the GNU Lesser General Public License shall
164
+apply, that proxy's public statement of acceptance of any version is
165
+permanent authorization for you to choose that version for the
166
+Library.
