  2. From    Dave Jones <>
  3. Subject RFC: virtualbox tainting.
  4.    
  5.  
  6. The number of bug reports we get from people with virtualbox loaded are
  7. truly astonishing.  It's GPL, but sadly that doesn't mean it's good.
  8. Nearly all of these bugs look like random corruption. (corrupt linked lists,
  9. corrupt page tables, and just plain 'weird' crashes).
  10.  
  11. This diff adds tainting to the module loader to treat it as we do with stuff
  12. from staging/ (crap). With this tainting in place, automatic bug filing tools
  13. can opt out of automatically filing kernel bugs, and inform the user to file
  14. bugs somewhere more appropriate.
