I don't know much about licenses, but is it possible for one to document
the hardware using the linux code and have another implement a
BSD-licensed driver based on that documentation?

The system should halt, not panic. However, it's been a long time since
I've used my indy and can't recall whether or not it behaved properly
then. You could comment out the cpu_reboot() call at the bottom of
sys/arch/sgimips/hpc/hpc.c to disable it.
