Thanks just removed that pesky )
Can you get rid of the "when distributed separately from the
kernel or incorporated into other software packages," wording? I'm not
exactly sure what it is trying to say, and if it limits the license
below in any way.
I had to pick an "or language" used already upstream and which folks were OK
with, this was one and I went with it. I prefer it as it makes it clear the
intent is outside of Linux I wish copyleft-next to apply.
