Would it not be more productive to have a one-line notice with a
tech-note number or reference to real documentation? Then the user can
type "man gplonly" or "less /usr/src/linux/Documentation/gplonly.txt"
for the real scoop on all of the error possibilities.

Mind you, on this list, it could be just as controversial picking a
name for the text file.
