Subject[PATCH 0/1] refcount: restore kref_get and kref_put to non-GPL status
Date
From: John Hubbard <jhubbard@nvidia.com>

Hi,

Say, I'm 99% sure that this was just an oversight, so
I'm sticking my neck out here and floating a patch to
Put Things Back. I'm hoping that there is not some
firm reason to GPL-protect the basic kref_get and
kref_put routines, because when designing some
recent new (open-source, yay!) device drivers, we relied
on this being available, even for MIT-licensed code.
