Re: CDDL/GPL and Nexenta (with CDDL libc)

I think the FSF wants us not to be able to use the System Library
exception.  It is only intended for proprietary operating systems.
The FSF also unconditionally labels the CDDL als GPL-incompatible
(although it is not clear if the license overview was thoroughly
updated for GPL version 3).

There used to be a GNU libc port to the SunOS kernel.  Perhaps the
Nexenta folks can revive that?
