I believe vendors can purchase a proprietary (ie non-free in both senses)
license and access from the device vendor. Otherwise you are pretty much
out of luck.

There is enough info the public domain to probably write an acceptable 2D
driver, maybe even to do a compositing 2D driver by staring hard at the
kernel bits that have been released (because they had to GPL them), but
not enough for 3D.
