 LICENSE says:

  Note that not all of the backends apply the exception and that some have
    additional licensing constraints.

 so GPL only should be fine. 

 In practice, an entity interested in the exception part should evaluate
 which backends can legally be included.

 btw, which software is actually using the exception?
