There's basically zero chance that the kernel will be relicensed. I know
people who discussed it and even if they could get agreement from Torvalds,
the process of getting the agreement of everyone of everyone who
contributed would be nearly impossible.

Additionally, I think the wireless firmware lockdown is rather bad too. If
we had to accept one, yes, wireless firmware lockdown would be the best but
we should do our best to argue in favor of neither.
