Hmm.  This leads me to think of something else.  Looking at the legal notice:

"Redistributions of source code (SGML DocBook) must retain the above
copyright notice, this list of conditions and the following disclaimer as
the first lines of this file unmodified."
The original copyright mentioned FreeBSD, not DragonFly.  From what I'm
reading, it looks like what we need to to reproduce the FreeBSD license
verbatim, as it's required, and _also_ have a new version to cover our
The biggest problem with that page is that there is no copyright notice 
above that statement.

Following the practice found in the code what should be done is to 
retain the  FreeBSD copyright notice and add a DragonFly notice above or 
below (can't find any consistent behavior on which one). Look at 
src/sys/i386/i386/identcpu.c and src/sys/i386/i386/machdep.c.
