Write to NVIDIA

Parent article: Local root exploit in NVidia driver
Inspired by a prior Letter to the [LWN] Editor on this topic, I have written to NVIDIA to ask them to consider releasing their hardware specs, so that we can create a free software driver for our NVIDIA hardware.
It's a long shot, and I do not believe that my letter will affect a change in NVIDIA's policy by itself, but I do believe that letting NVIDIA know that some of their customers do want free drivers is a necessary first step toward the eventual release of the information that we need.
I ask that anyone who wants to see an end to NVIDIA's proprietary video drivers also let them know that you care about this issue.
