And even if the kernel stays under the GPLv2, the FSF's code will be under gplv3, so we are pretty much guaranteed that any Linux distributor except for tiny embedded systems will have to do accept the license.
This is not the case. I work with several large consumer electronics companies, and I can assure you that the balkanization referred to by the kernel developers in the position statement is a very real possibility.
