According to the Heise article, SCO made portions of their own code (which is not identical
to Linux sources) "unreadable". That probably refers to the obfuscated text, which is IMHO
quite readable (no, that's not greek to me ;-). Well, they should have tried harder. Elfish or
Klingon at least. And they should also have tried harder than to dig out ancient Unix version
5 code they themselves (as Caldera) put under BSD license a few years ago.
Furthermore: Dear SGI, kmalloc() should be used to allocated kernel memory, no need to
brew something yourself.
