Have you actually looked on what nVidia REALLY distributes?

Parent article: Plugging into GCC
it's not a derived work since the same blob can be used, for example, in Windows driver. Nothing Linux-specific there.
What's the evidence for this btw? I know it's the generally accepted view, but what evidence is there for it, besides NVidias' confidence in being able to distribute this driver and the circumstantial evidence of some "looks like Windows programming style" symbol names? Is there any real independent evidence for this belief, or is being taken on trust?
