I think we'll get into GPL hell until the VSA code has actually been
made available in source form if we *link* it into the ELF image. Once
it is available in source, I expect we can do this without problem.
Jordan, do you need any help from my end in getting the VSA code
relicensed properly (now that we no longer need the VESA modules that
had ownership problmes)?
