At least as far as I understand many Linux authors, they are fine with GPLv2 and don't agree with GPLv3, won't give up their copyright (or other rights, including the "change the license" right) to anybody within the Linux community, and definitely will never give the "change the license" right to somebody outside said group. Just remember the flamewars that erupted when it was suggested to move Linux to GPLv3.
