Wouldn't there be an issue of GPL code vs. BSD license in porting the code?  I 
ask since my sound card only has linux GPL drivers and the chipset 
manufactuer doesn't want to release the spec, but I'm hesitant to look at the 
GPL code since then whatever I get from it wouldn't that have to be GPL'd and 
then now be able to be included in the kernel?
