Who do you think would sue TomTom on this issue? It could not be busybox, the FAT patents do not apply to their software and so they have no voice in the matter. It seems to me it would have to be someone claiming to be the copyright owner for Linux. Who is that?'If Tom Tom or any other company cross licenses patents then by section 7 of GPLv2 (for the Linux kernel) they lose the rights to redistribute the kernel at all ..'
