As I said before, Copyright licenses (like any license) are freely revocable unless barred by estoppel. The GPL v2 lacks a no-revocation clause thus estoppel would be more difficult to argue (additonally none of the "agreeing parties" have ever met each other).
GrSecurity is a derivative work of the linux kernel, it is non-seperable: it wholly relies on the linux kernel source code to work.
The linux kernel is not under joint copyright, it is simply a collection of derivative work upon derivative work.
The solution is for one or many of the rightsholders to the code GRSecurity is derived from/ modifies to rescind Brad Spengler's license to use or modify their code.
Brad no longer contributes to us. This is his stab at us all. Stab back.
Addionally there were third parties who contributed to the GRSecurity code base when it was publically distributed.
Brad Spengler prevents a private purchaser from redistributing the sourcecode via contract clauses between him and they: thus willfully frustrating the purpose of the license HE was granted by the linux kernel rightsholders. This is another reason a court may find him in violation of the license grant of the GPL. As we discussed previously.
Also Brad Spengler threatens others with lawsuit in a nearly transparent attempt to get them to stop porting over the work:
