Can you cite any precedents?

The kernel people I am referring to have talked to their lawyers about
it and the consensus is that a driver is a derived work of the OS that
it is developed for.

Look at some driver source some day - it's basically impossible to write
a driver without using any kernel APIs - driver model, spinlocks, etc.
