If it's really widely used, maybe something to add to
openembedded-core/files/common-licenses/ ? So that you don't need
any of the suggested ways?
that was one of the first things that came to mind ... if there are
enough packages with this license, why not just make it official? i
just did a quick search, and this is the only layer i see that makes
reference to it:

busybox/networking/tls_aes.c

/* This AES implementation is derived from tiny-AES128-C code,

open to suggestions.
