    Kernel changes from vanilla android will mostly be minimal - it's the userland HTC addons that you are interested in.

    Worthy but pointless, as the kernel is GPL'd therefore has to be released into the public domain.

    Uhh, public domain is something completely different and incompatible with GPL.

    I'm sure you got my drift. HTC don't have an option; they have to release it.
