Questions outline:
1) Have anyone done any development to support ATI IXP chip set?
2) How does the GPL license affect the porting the driver from ALSA?

I have a ASUS Pundit-R 
( Everything 
works fine except that I have no sounds. The specifications for the 
computer says that its an ADI AD1888 chip and pciconf tells me that 
it's a "AD1981 AC'97 Audio Controller by ATI. This seams to be 
unsupported by FreeBSD. What is needed is a driver for ATI chip called 

Is there anyone who is developing drivers for this setup? (1) I thought 
I might port the driver (atiixp.c/h) from ALSA to FreeBSD. The chipid 
numbers in those files matches those with pciconf. If no one has done 
any development on this I think I will give it a try. Those files go 
under GPL. How does that affect the development? (2)
