    SubjectTainting kernels for non-GPL or forced modules
    I have started work on the patch for /proc/sys/kernel/tainted with the
    corresponding modutils and ksymoops changes. insmod of a non-GPL
    module ORs /proc/sys/kernel/tainted with 1, insmod -f ORs with 2.

    What to do about modules with no license? Complain and taint or
    silently ignore? A lot of modules in -ac14 have no MODULE_LICENSE,
    probably because they have no MODULE_AUTHOR. IMHO the default should
    be complain and taint, even though it will generate lots of newbie
    questions to l-k.

    the body of a message to
