Oh, I did not know that these files include Luminary code parts. This
indeed is a real problem and we should find a solution ASAP.
Btw: Are you sure about: nut/arch/cm3/dev/atmel/sam3u_clk.c
For me this looks like pure Atmel code? Or was this ported from the

To prevent all architectures except CM3 to be infected by this license I
would vote to first replace the affected files:
by a clean-room implementation or at least a version of a different
source with acceptable license. In fact there is not much active code in
these files anyway.
Are there more files I missed?
Unfortunately I'm currectly a quite full of work but will do my best to
solve this problem ASAP as we need this as well on our project.
