Subjectinherit TAINT_PROPRIETARY_MODULE v2
Date
Hi Jessica,

we've had a bug in our resolution of _GPL modules since day one, that
is a module can claim to be GPL licensed and use _GPL exports, while
it also depends on symbols from non-GPL modules. This is used as a
circumvention of the _GPL exports by using a small shim module using
the _GPL exports and the other functionality. A recent example can
be found here:

Changes since v1:
- standardize on one spelling of "license"
- fix a commit message type
