It would best if you can get all acks, at least one authoritative from
each org involved or from each individual involved if not part of an
org. I reckon it may be difficult. But then you can document with your
patch set who you contacted, who you got ack from and who you did not.

Then again you are not changing anything about the licensing: just
replacing licensing by value (e.g. a full notice) by a license by
reference (e.g. an SPDX tag that references the full text).
