Some of the relevant developers feel more at ease with the VMI interface when it is connected this way, though there is some residual discomfort about the possibility of linking non-GPL binary hypervisor modules into the kernel.
One may not distribute a kernel linked to a non-GPL binary module. However, then distributed seperately, everybody has the freedom to do what they want. The GPL is not about usage, only about distribution!
Kernel devs: please concentrate on continuing to write great code and not on limiting our freedom on what to do with it! (except our freedom to redistribute it, of course)
