LICENSE move to LICENSES/ by 882e3014 causes buildbot breakage

Looks like the LICENSE file move to LICENSES/ by 882e3014 causes buildbot 

The SDK Makefile still expects to find LICENSE file as |$(TOPDIR)/LICENSE| 

    $(CP) -L \
        $(TOPDIR)/LICENSE \

In addition to the SDK Makefile, the |$(TOPDIR)/LICENSE| is also mentioned here: 



All stage1 builds with this commit 882e301461 are failing. 

Example error log: 

|./ /builder/shared-workdir/build/.config > 
cp -fpR -L \ /builder/shared-workdir/build/LICENSE \ 
/builder/shared-workdir/build/ \ ./files/ \ ./files/Makefile 
\ ./files/include/ \ ./files/README.SDK \ 
cp: cannot stat '/builder/shared-workdir/build/LICENSE': No such file or 
directory Makefile:88: recipe for target 
failed make[2]: Leaving directory '/builder/shared-workdir/build/target/sdk' |

Buildbot still built ok ce4cb8e 
but fails all builds since 36bb119 
which is only a few commits later (including this one). This commit looks 
like the probable culprit in that commit range.
