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?
+1 for adding Unlicense to openembedded-core's common-licenses
as long as this requires only adding an Unlicense file to that
directory, i can do that shortly.
I'm not sure, but there might be a need to add it to
SRC_DISTRIBUTE_LICENSES in
openembedded-core/meta/conf/licenses.conf.
that variable is gone:

licenses.conf: Remove the SRC_DISTRIBUTE_LICENSES variable

The SRC_DISTRIBUTE_LICENSES variable and its static list of licenses
has been replaced by AVAILABLE_LICENSES, which automatically contains
all available licenses.

That'll teach me to check in master instead of my release of Yocto :)
