Most Xen drivers in Linux use a dual GPL/BSD license, so that they can
be imported into other non GPL OSes:

This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or
modify it under the terms of the GNU General Public License version 2
as published by the Free Software Foundation; or, when distributed
separately from the Linux kernel or incorporated into other
software packages, subject to the following license:

restriction, including without limitation the rights to use, copy, modify,

and to permit persons to whom the Software is furnished to do so, subject to
the following conditions:

The above copyright notice and this permission notice shall be included in
all copies or substantial portions of the Software.

IN THE SOFTWARE.

IMO it would be good to release this driver under the same license, so
it can be incorporated into other OSes.

Thanks, Roger.
