Never mind, I found the answer that GPL with CPE is not allowed.

However, all classes under "org.apache.ignite.jdk8.backport" package have
also been released by Doug Lee to the public domain under "CC0 1.0
Universal (CC0 1.0) Public Domain Dedication" with the following language:
*Written by Doug Lea with assistance from members of JCP JSR-166*
*Expert Group and released to the public domain, as explained at*

I think we are OK. I will update the Notice file.
