That's not what he was saying, he's saying the code could be distributed
(i.e. on the company's github repo for example) to comply with GPL though
they wouldn't care about getting it merged (like plenty of crappy vendors
today).

But the point is irrelevant since this can already be done using, say,
clang which is already capable of building the kernel and where such
extensions could already be added.

I.e. that's just a non-argument, let's move along.
