I suggest you talk to a lawyer and review the general comments about
binary modules with him (http://people.redhat.com/arjanv/COPYING.modules
for example). You are writing an addition to linux from scratch, and it
is generally not considered OK to do that in binary form (I certainly do
not consider it OK).
