  • IANAL, but Oracle's lawyers are, and they see no problem distributing GPL2-licensed Windows drivers for VirtualBox[1], in both source and binary form, so, in the absence of evidence to the contrary, neither do I.

    Here's a copy of the click-through license from the latest Windows Driver Kit installer, which, to my non-lawyer eyes, doesn't appear to place any restrictions on use or distribution of drivers created with it, in source or binary form:

    https://jasomill.at/wdk-license.html

    Obviously any individual or project using proprietary headers under this license to build a driver would have to accept its terms, but this is no different than, e.g., using proprietary headers under the Xcode license to build GPL software for macOS, and the FSF, at least, seems to be fine with this, given that the Emacs project recommends[2] a macOS binary distribution[3] that does precisely this[4], so I assume it's okay.
