i sincerely hope for a forked/rewritten driver which does not depend on

I personally think that this also violates the GPL license...
The GPL part cannot stand by it-self and require none GPLed component

The fact that the regularity daemon work using external sysfs
interface without linkage requirements does not escape derived work in
this case.
