Patch fixing licensing

Description of problem:
I was going through the code and noticed some licensing incompatibilities. Notably qt and qt4 packages have modified parts of Qt which used to be GPLv2 only (with recent change to GPLv2 or GPLv3). That makes licensing tag inaccurate.

I am not 100% sure with my conclusions so I'd like legal to have a look at this. Blocking on their response

Patch for this is attached
