Licensing is way complex and subtle than this. GPL code may not even
use Freescale libraries as it is "viral" and would be impossible to
"open" the Vivante's code, for example. The statement gives the wrong
conception that it would be possible plus the setup-environment should
be as neutral as possible as the real EULA(s) need to be reviewed and
considered by customer legal team.
