HTC TyTN II / Kaiser doesn't look like a GPL violation!

There have been numerous rumors floating around the net that the HTC TyTN II (aka Kaiser) might be a GPL violation due to a number of strings in the firmware image referring to Linux and vmlinux.

I've done some analysis on this subject, and posted my preliminary results in this posting to lkml earlier today.

So as indicated, I do not see any reason to believe there is a GPL violation with regard to the Linux kernel in the MSM7200 modem side as used in the abovementioned device.

So please stop those rumors now. I'm obviously not opposed to people being watchful and report/investigate potential GPL violations. But before you call it an actual violation, please rather make sure that you have some evidence!
