Can you please clarify what the comments about GPLv3 are supposed to
mean on that page? Is it a reference to a non-public discussion?
If the current driver is licensed under the MIT/X11 license (as it would
appear that it is) changing it without adding substantial new work is
legally questionable at best. Furthermore, changing this license after
adding to it could be considered to be obnoxious and anti-community.
A large number of installed systems work by fiat. That is, they work
by being declared to work.
