In nVidia/ATI's defense, unlike previous FC/non-GPL problems (udev, 4K

Beside releasing their code under GPL (Which is a good thing(tm))
there's nothing nVidia nor ATI can do to fix this problem.

this claim is incorrect, the workaround is trivial.

I assume you mean "fixing" their driver by adding a copy of
print_tainted function, right?
Am I missing any other solution?

The nVIDIA driver does not build without patches anyways. They need to release a new version real soon now to cover the changes for anyone running a new kernel. (Not just for Fedora.)
