I don't think so; you can communicate with something without being a derivative work of it. Maybe you could write a portable driver, where the majority of the code can run under different OS's, that just uses a small glue to connect to the actual kernel. The driver itself could maybe run under Linux, Solaris, and Windows... but does that make it a derivate of all three?
