A while ago, I watched a video that was talking about driver development and 
hardware vendors by a guy from Intel. I'm pretty sure it was on some xorg-
conference or somethink alike.

It had a title like "how to make hardware vendors happy" or something similar, 
but I don't remember exactly. It was about the problems that arise when 
hardware vendors want to have free software drivers, one example was the 
mentioning of moving features to a wlan card firmware in order to be able to 
create a driver that complies with state regulation.

Does anyone remember that video and can give me a link?
