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.

Hi all,

1) get a list of the account GTalk contacts or Google Contacts?
2) send a contact a message (via IChatSession.sendChatMessage() ?)
3) is there any GTalk API documents?
