Normaly one would expect 4.3.1 or so for such things... (IMO)

I thought only transferring the code from one base to another was restricted -
like X11 -> kernel fb - due to license reasons. It was not about distributing.
Becose of the license restricting freedom to copy (or steal) code, they don't
want to risk violating the X11/GNU license by accident.
