I just got off the phone with the lawyers regarding the patent.
In order to get something started regarding the claims on the patent, I need confirmation
on what exactly are the restrictions and/or wording required by the Linux community.
So, in that sense my question becomes: What made DaveM change his mind on

regarding the patent-question. From https://lwn.net/Articles/783673/
, I see:
It looks like a fairly typical battle between a protocol pushed by the
largest Internet service providers, and one with a rather more grass-roots
origin. There is, however, another important thing to know about L4S:
Alcatel-Lucent claims a patent on the dual-queue algorithm. The company has
generously offered to make that patent available under "fair, reasonable,
and non-discriminatory" terms; such terms are, of course, highly
discriminatory against free software implementations. They make it
impossible to merge the affected code into a GPL-licensed kernel.
Is that true?
