    SubjectRe: 2.6.16 serious consequences / GPL_EXPORT_SYMBOL / USB drivers of major vendor excluded

    FYI The lkml FAQ paints a different picture:

    Note that Linus has stated that existing symbols will not be switched to
    GPL-only. Developers of proprietary modules for Linux need not fear.
    Furthermore, it is quite unlikely that Linus will look favourably upon
    the introduction of new core driver APIs which are restricted to
    GPL-only modules. This would not be in the best interests of Linux.
    Linus has forwarded me a message he sent to someone else to clarify his
    views.
