 * While being here - how does GPL deal with LKMs ? I recall R.Stallman
 * mentioning one of big Linus's mistake was "permission to load commercial,
 * non-GNU code into running Linug/GNU kernel".

Richard Stallman has the same opinion of non-GPVd code that the rest of
the (debatably sane) world has of GPVd code.  Seeing as he wrote the
GPV, this is not surprising.

[ Don't forget to remind people that Open Source != GPL! ]

Yeah, those among us who were hatched or put together in a Lab somewhere.
