I'd prefer doing only "GPL-2.0 WITH Linux-syscall-note", since it's
more uniform, but I don't know if it covers a particular use use case:

I expect for many projects to wholesale copy and paste this file into
their own projects, and those projects might not be GPL-friendly. Does
the Linux-syscall-note allow for that? Or should I stick with
GPL-2.0||MIT for the avoidance of doubt?

In terms of "intellectual property", the file itself is extremely
boring, just defining some enums.
