[A51] Kraken license

I'm re-implementing A5/1 cracker to work with OpenCL, have a server-client clusterable architecture etc. as a school-project. I would like to publish the result under GPL.

A5/1-computing files are explicitly declared non-free (I'm not using them anyway), but the rest has unstated license. Namely, I would like the following:

 - link Kraken/DeltaLookup.cpp with GPL code. The tables have undocumented format and rewriting block searcher from scratch would be a pain.
 - edit Utilities/find_kc.cpp to support uplink (actually a 10-line patch) and distribute the edited result and its includes (preferably under GPL too, but I don't really care about exact license). Cracking uplink gives me pretty good results in networks where downlink randomization is implemented.
