How many are college students? When people think of working on their own time, you can imagine an engineer that is doing one job during the day and hacking on Linux at night.
Even though, I started as that type of work with Linux, today I bet a lot of it is professors using Linux as a learning tool and then those students get hooked on working on the kernel. It's not that they are not paid to do it, it may more likely be that they are not yet paid to do it.
I believe that Frederic Weisbecker falls under this category.
