EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL – Free software !

A few weeks ago, Greg KH proposed a patch that moved all pci symbols from EXPORT_SYMBOL to EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL, stating that the days of proprietary modules were numbered. Arjan Van de Ven further explained how tolerating proprietary modules was hurting the kernel in the long run.
Today, I see that Andrew Morton did one of his troll merges and added Greg’s patch to his -mm tree.

Go guys!
