    If your code is licensed GPL or greater rights then you shouldn't have a
    problem. The module loader recognizes

    "GPL"
    "GPL v2"
    "GPL and additional rights"
    "Dual BSD/GPL"
    "Dual MIT/GPL"
    "DUal MPL/GPL"

    as legitimate users of _GPL. Any work which is derivative of the kernel
    (which in practise I suspect means almost any module) will need a GPL
    compatible licence anyway.
