    Well, it boils down to the full sourcecode. NVidia does only half.
    Other good examples besides 3ware are: VMware kernel modules and
    SUNWut/SRSS3 Linux Kernel modules.

    Looks like there's only the GPU industry left that thinks somebody could
    "mis"use the kmod to make them (:one company) inferior on the market.
