Ouch.

The copyright in question was attached to code from the source code for
mySQL. There is no way that code can be in an Apache project.

Given the cut and paste history, it seems like it will require a very
detailed audit of code history or web searches to find where the original
code came from. The my_aes.c and .h files, for instance, have no hint in
their history that they came from GPL'ed code.
