Does this mean that the releases since LLVM 9.0 misrepresent the
license of the source code, and all those SPDX tags are wrong?

<https://releases.llvm.org/9.0.0/LICENSE.TXT> says this:

| The LLVM Project is under the Apache License v2.0 with LLVM Exceptions:

Unlike <https://llvm.org/LICENSE.txt>, it also mentions the “Legacy
LLVM License”.  But I think a reasonable interpretation is that this
license only applies to the files that do not reference the Apache
Software License Version 2.0, and instead point to the LLVM License.
