Still doesn't cut it. 10 first-line kernel hackers have publicly disagreed with GPLv3, there are probably much more who think likewise in the rank and file. Sure, if you could get 95% GPLv3'd, you'd be in the clear; but I guess those 10 are responsible for something like a 30% of the kernel (mostly core stuff, that can't just be configured out). Plus if they walk away, then Linux is no more (it isn't the current source code, but its development dynamics what makes it successful).
