The kernel is objecting (warning the user about being tainted after loading 
the module because of licensing issues), but this is irrelevant for his 
problem. The module doesn't fail to load because of the kernel warning, but 
because of the missing symbol.

And, basically, Richard Stallmans "free must be free and nothing but free" is 
not a bug, it's a feature of the GPL. But this is a rather basic object of 
discussion, which I fear is inappropriate for this list. ;-)
