The problem, of course, is that lots of driver developers get the datasheets under NDAs and cannot contribute them anywhere public. There are those who say that we simply should not develop drivers under such conditions, while others say it's better to have the driver with as much useful information crammed into it as possible.
GPL compliance seems like a hard claim to make, in any case. There is no other form of the code to be "the preferred form of the work for making modifications."
