Which he does by repeatedly insulting them.

There have been no copyright violations. The changes were proposed, and rejected, by the kernel developers. A diff was posted to the list. It wasn't committed.

At no point has any of the altered code in question been redistributed. But let's not let facts get in the way of Theo's mindless zealotry and hatred against GPL developers.
