IANAL, but my understanding is that "All rights reserved." means that
any rights _not_ provided for in the license are retained by the
copyright holder. Its not uncommon to see this sentence just above the
meat of a BSD license. TNF does it as well. Look at e.g.
sys/kern/kern_subr.c for an example.
When used with a BSD license, I think there aren't really rights left,
but I guess it explicitly limits the user to the terms stated in the BSD
license. (I _suspect_ this may be redundant, since I think this is
implicitly true under international copyright, but then again, IANAL.)
