Patch to add %license

Description of problem:
This package contains one or more files containing the package license in the source tarball, but it is not installed on the system with the %license macro. This is important, because the license files will not be installed if the RPM is installed with docs disabled (such as when generating a container base image), which may be a compliance violation.

A provenpackager will apply the patch in two weeks if we receive no negative response from the maintainer.

Hi Stephen,

  I have no objections to this patch, and no reason to delay applying it.  So I have gone ahead and checked it in.  See: binutils-2.27-16.fc26

This was built in Rawhide, so I'm closing it.
