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.
