I'm the author of CUB, and in particular, [9] (half.h) below.
>> but what about the last one [9]?
The boilerplate no-redistribution license at top of half.h was an oversight; it should read
the same as the BSD-style headers for the rest of CUB's source files.  (It was cribbed from

I've updated the source for half.h in CUB's master branch (see
 However, it would be several days before I could qualify and tag a new release version (v1.8.1)
of CUB.  Further, there are several other aspects of "master" that are ahead of the current
v1.8.0 branch, which might impact your own release qualification process.  Let me know if
snapping a new release would be a priority for you.
Happy to help,
