Err, it is worth noticing that refusal to merge crap in the kernel happens all the time.
There is no way any NDIS driver would ever be merged, AFAIK, and the reasons for this are
An NDIS driver would be slower, more difficult to maintain, far more complex (you have to take
into account the entire NDIS wrapper too!), and IMHO just downright nastier to look at than it
would be had it used the native APIs in the first place.
So I am afraid an NDIS-lover will have to find another way to equal himself to the people who
mark symbols GPL-only for political reasons (as opposed to technical reasons).
