Can you give me please some URLs? One where to download the
source, and one of the spec file (and patches if any).

It's more a "I do not want to be the one to put LGPLed stuff into a
kernel module", even if the common believe is that such a LGPLed
header does make the rest derived code / tainted. Currently I do not
intend to spend the time which is necessary to explain the issues to
core@ and discuss it with them. If someone else is willing to spend
time for this and if core@ tells me they are ok with this header
entering the src/sys tree, I shut up and commit it.
