Anyway, if it doesn't fix a bug it is nowhere near a high-priority
patch for that seething bugfest which we like to call a kernel, so
I'll drop it.
-- Andrew Morton
In [the] future, I'd recommend adding a witty comment to any such
trivial patch: it's really the only way to get it featured on LWN's
Kernel Quote of the Week.
-- Rusty Russell
In talking with a lot of different companies recently, I've come to
the realization that we really need to do something about companies
that violate the kernel's GPLv2 license. It has been a common
criticism that "Well, our company abides by the GPL by releasing
the code properly for our kernel modules, but what about all of
those other companies that do not?" The companies that are good
members of the community are getting a lot of pressure by people
internal to them to stop releasing the code. This is justified by
pointing to the companies that do not release their code as they
are not having any "penalties" by doing this.
