Why would BSD advocates be applying patches to the linux kernel? (You don't
need the tool to read a patch for ideas, do you?) Why would BSD advocates
apply a GPL-licensed patch to the GPL-licensed Linux kernel, and then
complain that the tool they're using to do so is GPL-licensed?

I'm confused. (Not SUPRISED, mind you. Just easily confused.)
