You can't do this. The strict terms of the GPL require us to preserve
intact all notices referring to copyright and licences. If hisilicon
truly did make a mistake when they added their original copyright
notices, *they* may submit a patch to correct it, but you can't correct
it for them without their permission just because you think they got it
wrong.
