So we see where this author is coming from. Thanks, but no thanks.

The rest of this paper is useless. It spends a bunch of time pointing
out that the issue of whether separately loadable Linux kernel modules
fall under the GPL could be complicated, but it's most likely that
they don't. Um, OK. I think we all already know that. It's only the
FSF that thinks otherwise, with their expansive and wrong view of what
a derivative work is.
