what is the proper way to include GPL source code into FreeBSD distribution?
i have a source code (from Linux) that is under GPL. i would like hack it a
little bit and include it into FreeBSD distribution.

should i

1) keep GPL license?
2) put BSD license on top and keep GPL?
3) substitute GPL with BSD license?

do i have to contact the author of the Linux code and get his permission?
