Perhaps the best way to get out of all this mess would be for the kernel
folks to agree that
They can't. "Kernel folks" in this case means copyright holders of the kernel header files. It isn't feasible to find them all and get a new copyright license from them.
Contrary to appearances, neither Linus nor the kernel maintainers have the power to permit any particular copying/deriving of the kernel.
