Subjectmodule-licences / tainting the kernel
Date
Hi all,

from my point of view, the 'tainting-rule' for kernel-modules is too
restrictive, allowing GPL-only modules to not be marked as tainting the
kernel.

Would it be possible to let e.g. LPGL-licenced kernel-modules be loaded
legally?

I do not at all want to hide my source code in any way, but under some
circumstances, the pure GPL is too restrictive, and would reduce interest in
open-source projects significantly.

Opinions?

Regards,
Axel
