SubjectRE: Module Licensing? (thinking a little more)

Yes, clause 3.a) "machine readable source code". A .s file is, "machine
readable source code" by the assembler and by people that have enough time
to lost.. It is like head.S, but using numeric labels and other stuff of
that kind.

Btw I don't understand exactly the problem with the use of asm code (in
opcodes or in nemonics) and the GPL in this particular case . To me, it's
"machine readable source code" by the assembler and if it's compilation
produces exactly the same executable, and don't see the problem.

It's a nighmare to debug and mantain, but it's the problem who made the
"asm" modulo not the kernel people.
