Thanks for bringing this up. Note that we don't provide a GPL-covered
kernel. We do, however, provide a few kernel modules under GPLv2.
The question here is whether we can provide a kernel alongside some
CDDL modules and some GPLv2 modules. I'm afraid I can't answer this
If you want to pursue this, note that this is a technical-oriented
list. I recommend you bring it up on debian-legal instead. If it
turns out that we can't distribute this, there are ways in which this
could be resolved (upstream 10-CURRENT branch includes BSDL
replacements for the remaining GPLv2 bits).
