Besides Linux NVidia also supports FreeBSD and Solaris, so, their propriatory
driver is available for these systems. If I understand correctly, the question
was can we port Nvidia's FreeBSD propriatory driver to NetBSD,
technically and legally. AFAIK it doesn't require KMS.
As about nouveau(4) for FreeBSD kib%freebsd.org@localhost is probably a right
person to contact. He worked on porting GEM to FreeBSD and may
have good knowledge about KMS too.
It would be nice to find a developer experienced in this area
and donate for this project (GEM+KMS), IMHO one of the most
important project right now for NetBSD.
