There's a much much longer history about that, this can safely be ignored.
The history goes back 3 years .. this one only goes back a couple of months.
It will take at least a week for a single person to understand the
whole issue from the beginning on, although I'd say it's not relevant.

In case of Userspace tuners, see cx88 freeBSD driver the project is
growing, netBSD
is also using parts of that em28xx driver - there was no complaint at
all about it.
Some people don't like that idea in linux so it's ok and it has been
redone, no big deal anymore.
