    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?
