Please see above.
There is no difference between the GPL and the LGPL except for a promise not to argue. ndiswrapper is not LGPL, so we are inflicted with the argument.
The GPL/LGPL does not prohibit linking to non-GPL code. It only restricts, potentially, the distribution of such a combination. That is not the issue here. Rather we are concerned about end use, which is outside the purview of the GPL. Some people may also be opposed to the end use, but they must find some mechanism other than a claim of GPL infrigement to exercise that opposition.
