I can't speak for the Alice people, but this would be seriously
frowned upon.  Linux is covered by the license terms of the GNU
General Public License, and the people working on NetBSD do not
allow that license anywhere _near_ our kernel code.

In short, it has the potential to become a legal nightmare, and that's
the last thing we need.
