What happens is a module is distributed as a combination of open-source .c
files and closed-source .o files. That is, it's "mixed source" - part of the
driver is open-source and part is closed-source. What happens if the
open-source version of the driver is the only code that uses GPL-only symbols.
How is that handled?
