> Who can file a lawsuit, anyone who has committed code to the kernel?
It's an interesting question. For this particular issue, my guess would be that they would need a copyright on some part of the kernel header files that are used in Bionic. Writing a random device driver, for example, would seem to lack the proper standing. Actually, of course, all of that is incorrect, anyone could *file* a lawsuit (even with no kernel copyright, I suppose), but to have a reasonable standing to make any progress, I would think you would have to have copyrights that are directly involved. IANAL of course.
