Re: non-free firmware in kernel modules, aggregation and unclear copyright notice.

It merely depends on the definition of "aggregation". I'd say that two
works that are only aggregated can be easily distinguished and

you cannot easily extract the firmware and code parts.
Not really... As a matter of fact, it's quite easy to separate those parts, at least as easy as it is to separate one story inside a book that contains an anthology of short stories. And the latter is not considered a derivative work, either.
