[Libguestfs] [libnbd PATCH] maint: Update reference to license info



Our README file claims that license info is in LICENSE, but we did not
have a file by that name in the tarball.  At least we did correctly
ship COPYING.LIB since the library is LGPLv2+.
---

The LGPL requires that the user also receive a copy of the GPL, since
anyone can upgrade their copy from LGPL to GPL.  Does that mean we
should ship a copy of COPYING alongside COPYING.LIB?
