license question about bootchart.c

 I'd like to add bootchart capture functionality, currently
contained in Android's init program, in the files:

system/core/init/bootchart.c and

to busybox, so it can be used in other embedded
projects.  By my interpretation of the Apache License V2.0
and GPL 2.0, this would be prohibited by license.

Is it possible that these files could be dual-licensed
under Apache v2.0 and GPL 2.0 by the original author,
so that it can be spread to other open source projects.

The code is not large (about 400 lines), so it wouldn't
be hard to just make it up from scratch, but I thought
I'd check first.

2. How integrate mobclix on Android


After some weeks learning about Android Im about to publish my first
Since its going to be ad-supported and I decided to go with mobclix
(based on reviews) Ive finaly signed up for it and then tried to
download its android SDK.
Well, the sdk comes with only one extensionless file and theres no
documentation at all on their site about how to integrate their sdk
with your application. At least I couldnt find after spending quite
some time surfing on it.
Has anyone here been able to integrate it? If so, could you point me
to a how to, tutorial, documentation or a where to start?
