If the Broadcom driver gets into the kernel now based on merit, it doesn't necessarily mean the vendor will be able to do whatever it wants in the future. Broadcom is not the Linux kernel gatekeeper. If things don't clean up between the main actors in this, I trust Linus will make the correct compromise.
