There is also the issue that Jörg wants devices to be referenced in a
particular way that most other developers don't want to do. So a fork
may be needed even if licensing is resolved.

It doesn't sound like fun work though. I get the impression that there are
a lot of device quirks and without sample hardware and a fair amount of
dedication it is going to be hard to do a good job.
