Oh really? Sun claims touts their extensive device support -- why don't you
ask them for a driver. (That was sarcasm -- Solaris has many drivers, but
they tend to be for high-end specialty boards, not commodity hardware. It
seems that Sun is mostly interested in narrow, protected markets.)

No, this is a license violation.
To be precise, you can modify the code for your own use, but any
distribution of such a driver would violate the license, making it pointless
to do the port.
