Of course it can! But so can your IDE chipset, your soundcard and your Ethernet card. What's so unique about GPU and GLES?

Not if they are behind an IOMMU, like on most of the recent x86 platforms. Right?

Right, but IDE and Ethernet drivers were in Linux 20 years ago, IOMMU is relatively recent creation.

If the GPU development will shift to something like Broadcom is pushing I'm pretty sure interface with GPU will receive something like IOMMU in 20 years time.
