The userspace pieces have to interact with assorted userspace programs, some of which are closed source, thus LGPL at most, preferrably MIT as that is the default license for X.org.
GPLv3 is out, as the kernel won't go GPLv3 in our lifetimes (and the need to exchange pieces with the userspace part is a real possibility); thus GPLv2+ is also out.
