That makes sense.  Currently we ship with something under GPL in our kernel
so I think this has already been taken care of.  We do not charge for our
sources and they are all readily available.  smbfs is distributed with
FreeBSD and I believe that is under GPL.  I think this module would be in
the ports system though and not distributed with freebsd in a release.
