What you seem to be missing is that they still support GPLv2. The complaint is that GPLv3 asks for more restrictions than GPLv2 did, and the kernel developers apparently think they go too far.
As to the questions about the patent clause, I don't think it's FUD. I don't think anyone but a lawyer could tell you how serious the danger would be, but there definitely is some risk there.
I doubt that any of the kernel developers would want to apologize for hte fact that their employers are sinking millions of dollars into supporting and developing Linux and other OSS projects. You seem to be unwilling to admit that anyone could possibly just disagree with you...
