    I suppose Linus’s remark remains…

    1. 5

      Can we please just mark the API/ABI as GPL-only and be done with it?

      Nvidia has received considerable leeway for years and nothing good has come out of it.

      1. 2

        I’m not sure what you mean here. The Nvidia binary module is already infringement, just no one interested in enforcement/compliance efforts :)

        1. 2

          Agree, but in fact there is a difference between EXPORT_SYMBOL and EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL and it matters as copyright law usually takes an author’s intention into account.

        2. 1

          It would be interesting to see the outcome, since NVIDIA definitely relies on Linux for its HPC market.

          1. 1

            They maintain a FreeBSD port of their driver for some reason, guessing that such a move would empower more HPC on FreeBSD so yes please :)
