Disclaimer: IANAL

While there is often much BSD-ish code in various Linux distributions I
thought that the GPL prohibited inclusion of, or linking to, any code that
is non-GPL.  Since the Linux kernel is GPL would that not prohibit the
linking/inclusion of BSD code into the kernel tree?  I think that the only
way that it could happen legally is by a loadable module, am I way off on
