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.

To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-kernel" in
the body of a message to
