Licenses again...

Hey all,
In the recent issue between OpenBSD and Linux wireless about the Atheros 
driver, GPL folks say they are allowed to relicense BSD-ed code provided they 
leave the copyright and the license in the code. There are some BSD folks who 
claim that the BSD license doesn't allow to relicense the code, because they 
aren't the copyright holders of the code so they cannot wrap the code in 
another license ie. GPL. 

What do people think?
