SubjectChanged message for GPLONLY symbols
Date
When insmod detects a non-GPL module with unresolved symbols it
currently says:

Note: modules without a GPL compatible license cannot use GPLONLY_ symbols

I thought that hint was self-explanatory, obviously it was not clear.
Never underestimate the ability of lusers to misread a message. insmod
2.4.12 will say

Hint: You are trying to load a module without a GPL compatible license
and it has unresolved symbols. The module may be trying to access
GPLONLY symbols but the problem is more likely to be a coding or
user error. Contact the module supplier for assistance.

Does anyone think that this message can be misunderstood by anybody
with the "intelligence" of the normal Windoze user?
