Well AHL's "recipe" is the one followed by FreeBSD I think to use DTrace and they won't integrate DTrace in FreeBSDv7 because some of them have doubts about the legality of linking BSD code with CDDL headers.
The issue would be of course the same for the Linux kernel.
Is the legal issue real or not? Some say yes, some say no, I have really no clue..
Hopefully this legal mess will be cleared at some point, otherwise maybe Sun could relicense just the header under the BSD license to clear this mess once for all?
