I'm almost certain some non-GPL code has been released as a kernel
module for the linux kernel by various card vendors.  One hears
complaints about them not being updated from time to time.

Is there a reason why non-GPL code dynamically loaded into GPL code,
is different from GPL code dynamically loaded into non-GPL code?
