If you have a question about license acceptability and want a
definitive answer, send mail to technical-exec @, we should
be able to say for sure.  (Really, we should document it well and
publically, but there are so many hours in a day.)

(There may be some files in the source tree which currently don't
follow these restrictions, but hopefully not the kernel.  "We're
working on it.")
