Why BSD?  You do realize what that means when combined within the body
of the kernel, right?

Are you going to be expecting others to contribute back to the code
under this license, or will you accept the fact that future
contributions from the community will cause the license to change?

My main concern is that you, and everyone else involved in the driver,
never considered the license of the code in the first place and expected
the kernel community to accept it as-is, placing the problem on us.

What will be done in the future to prevent this from happening again?
