    Subject[PATCH] Blacklist hsfmodem module
    Google CodeSeacrh for


    and you'll see

    hsfmodem- - 6 identical

    15: MODULE_DESCRIPTION("Conexant low-level hardware driver");
    MODULE_LICENSE("GPL\0for files in the \"GPL\" directory; for others, only LICENSE file applies");
    MODULE_INFO(supported, "yes"); - Unknown License - C - More from hsfmodem- »

    It seems, hcfpcimodem-1.10full.tar.gz from
    also uses GPL\0 trick.

    Patch is obviously not tested (and I'm not sure name is right, got it from
    Ubuntu forums and tarball filename),

    Does someone know internal contact so we can weed out all names and
    blacklist them in bulk?

    P.S.: Curiously enough, binary parts are *.O , not *.o .
    Presumably, .o suffix scares their developers, while tainting
    messages are busy scaring their users.
