There is indeed a licensing issue. It was in the codebase in 2011 and
removed in 2012 as we readied for the first ASF release.

For a history, see:
https://git-wip-us.apache.org/repos/asf?p=cloudstack.git;a=history;f=scripts/vm/hypervisor/xenserver/vhd-util;h=46d62dd44d9224b9b8c5c11f05bb789473ddc1a4;hb=HEAD

Tuna:

Please revert this commit. vhd-util is both a binary and licensed in a
manner that makes it impossible from an ASF policy perspective to
retain in our version control or ship in a release - both of which are
problematic.
