Very interesting. I myself don't use these drivers, but there were rumours
(about the ATI ones) that you could compile the kernel modules for AMD64
and still use them if the userland were i386, so I assumed the source is
available (as with VMWare's kernel modules).
(Did you really mean kernel code when you were talking of the driver core?)
Thanks for the correction,
