Sure we can! but you'd be a fool to follow it ;)
Actually, his real question was pretty straight forward that you don't
even need to be a lawyer to answer.
He was wondering if he wrote a priority module for a priority OS and
someone else that he didn't know wrote a GPL interface to his module,
would he be responsible to release his code under the GPL.
So he's not distributing any GPL, but someone else did without his
knowledge. This is pretty easy to answer. He's not responsible, but the
one who wrote the GPL code and used it with his module is. He was just a
bit paranoid that someone else can cause him problems.
Issue's solved, he knows he's OK.
