There were three files where license mentioned GPL but not any version nor the COPYING file.

Since I'm not sure whether COPYING file applies in these cases or not, I decided to mark these three cases as "GPL (only GPLv2 if COPYING applies)".

Is this OK?

The files are:

Also, in the second file the license is just "Written for the Linux Kernel, and GPLed by Ken Hollis" which I think is OK even if it is a bit short.

Just "GPL" means "GPL, any version", so it's not restricted to GPLv2 only (although for the Linux kernel only GPLv2 matters). I would mark them as just GPL.
