commit: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=aa1773ea21954283c3b4ca59d4e6a719cb6251f6
branch: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=refs/heads/2020.02.x

The live555 source code includes both a COPYING file (with the GPL-3.0
license text) and a COPYING.LESSER file (with the LGPL-3.0 license
text). However, all source files indicate a LGPL-3.0 license, and none
of them indicate a GPL-3.0 license. In addition,
http://live555.com/liveMedia/faq.html#copyright-and-license says the
source code is under the LGPL.

So, we:

- Bump LGPL License to 3.0+
- Add a comment about the GPL-3.0 license
