In discussion with William Leslie (verte) in the #hurd IRC channel, the idea 
of getting rid of GPLv2 only code was exposed.

A kernel under "GPLv3 or later" would be great. Optionally with some "BSD" 

Maybe it could be one of the long-term target of "the Hurd roadmap".

 <verte>  Currently gnumach is using linux 2.0 and 2.2 drivers.
 <verte>  I am not sure if they are licensed under "GPLv2 or later" or
 <verte>  just "GPLv2" only.

Maybe we can maintain almost all drivers and move to a "BSD"+"GPLv3 or later" 
license.  IMHO, the Linux kernel sucks for being in practice GPLv2 only.

Unfortunately I do not have time to realize such task, so instead I have 
started a donation-pledge-group with $50 USD at http://gnuherds.org/pledges 
So maybe others can carry out such task at the long term.
