Kernel modules have definitely been a contentious issue vis-a-vis the GPL. That being said I believe you are 100% correct. Although MadWifi is dual license, in this case linking to the kernel provides the GPL infection to force the decision. Well again they have not yet replied to me as of yet so let's hope they also come to this conclusion and release this code.

Submission + - Yahoo! Photos closing pain

tundra_man writes: So as we are all aware Yahoo! decided to close Yahoo! Photos in favor of supporting a single photo service. Way back when I used to use Yahoo! Photos before moving over to Flickr so I was not surprised to receive an email from Yahoo! today saying that it is now time to figure out what to do with the remaining photos on Yahoo! Photos. To my surprise the email suggest that Yahoo! is willing to help you move your photos to Flickr or other photo sites such as PhotoBucket, "...we are offering you the opportunity to move to another photo sharing service (Flickr, KODAK Gallery, Shutterfly, Snapfish, or Photobucket), download your original-resolution photos back to your computer, or buy an archive CD from our featured partner...". There is even a nice link, "tell us what to do with your photos". So I click on the link expecting to be taken to a page where I can do a few clicks and easily move my photos to Flickr. To my disappointment the page I am presented with is his some useless text, a link to Flickr and a link "take me to my photos" which takes me to another useless page. Yahoo! way to build up my expectations, then quickly bring me back down to earth.
