LICENSES/deprecated: add Zlib license text
The new files contributed to zlib have Zlib SPDX license identifier. Since there was no Zlib license text in LICENSES, scripts/ reported the following errors: lib/zlib_dfltcc/dfltcc.c: 1:28 Invalid License ID: Zlib lib/zlib_dfltcc/dfltcc.h: 1:28 Invalid License ID: Zlib lib/zlib_dfltcc/dfltcc_deflate.c: 1:28 Invalid License ID: Zlib lib/zlib_dfltcc/dfltcc_inflate.c: 1:28 Invalid License ID: Zlib lib/zlib_dfltcc/dfltcc_util.h: 1:28 Invalid License ID: Zlib The patch adds Zlib SPDX license to LICENSES/deprecated, thus resolving the issues reported by spdxcheck.
