DOA - Dead or Alive (The Movie): Featuring: Partial linux source

I was watching the movie "Dead or Alive" this afternoon, and I was curious to see the source code scrolling past was from the linux kernel

Interestingly they have blotched out bits and pieces, notably the copyright declaration. They also appear to lack the ability to render tabs.

You can compare to arch/alpha/kernel/err_impl.h (taken from Ubuntu's linux-source-2.6.19), I'll include the excerpt pictured above here:

* linux/arch/alpha/kernel/err_impl.h
* Copyright (C) 2000 Jeff Wiedemeier (Compaq Computer Corporation)
* Contains declarations and macros to support Alpha error handling
* implementations.

union el_timestamp;
struct el_subpacket;
struct ev7_lf_subpackets;

struct el_subpacket_annotation {
struct el_subpacket_annotation *next;
u16 class;
u16 type;
u16 revision;
char *description;
char **annotation;

I'm not sure how legal or anything this is, but interesting none the less...
