If you don't open the code for your driver, somebody will reverse engineer not only the driver, but also the firmware.
I just cannot imagine anyone reverse engineering Intel firmware. It's not interesting because it doesn't help improve the driver. Sure, somebody might hack the existing firmware for some purposes, but reimplementing it completely would be too much work.
