[avr-libc-dev] Linux -> avr-libc - License issue?

Hi all,

I have started looking at porting the relatively simple byteorder
routines from Linux to avr-libc as requested in AVRFreaks.  The question
I have is that all Linux code is covered by the GPLv2, while (I believe)
avr-libc is covered by the LGPL.

Would importing the code (in any form) into avr-libc violate GPLv2 by
putting the code (modified though it will be) under the somewhat more
restrictive LGPL?

Or am I being pedantic?

Best regards,
