Duane Merril (author of CUB and this file in particular) sent an explanation to this list,
but either his reply is stuck in moderation or there was some other technical difficulty and
the message is not showing up. Below is the email that he sent to me:

Hi Przemek, I don’t seem to be able to OAUTH to Ponymail via Google, and my attempts to
use the mailto: link seem to have sent my response below into a black hole.  Feel free to
forward, if you like.

Hi,

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
an internal project to facilitate regression testing, and isn’t part of the core library.
 I simply forgot to update the header when adding regression tests for that data type type.)


I’ve updated the source for half.h in CUB’s master branch (see https://github.com/NVlabs/cub/blob/master/test/half.h).
 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,

Duane

There might be other things missing.

the first 2 are fix next release sort of issues, but what about the last one [9]?
