I just wanted to add a note on top of what others have suggested
already.  When you submit your driver to bugzilla, be sure to
indicate the license terms for the driver.  The X source code
tree is made up mostly of "MIT" style license, and generally
speaking that only MIT licensed code, or could with very similar
license terms is permitted in the tree.

Most people license driver modules as "MIT", so if you have done
so also, there should probably not be any license hassles. ;o)
