Update: I've gotten all this cleared up.  It's okay to put the
FSF-copyrighted stuff under GPL-3-or-later, and the separate copyright
notice can be removed after reassignment as long as the years on the
primary copyright notice are right.  So, if everything goes according to
plan, I'll be converting the source as a whole to GPL-3-or-later
