This mutually assured destruction stalemate very effectively prevents any of the parties volunteering with opensourcing their drivers, and in fact allows any open source drivers infringing on above IP (clean-room reverse engineered, or not: try to prove a negative to anyone

In any case clean-room reverse engineering is not a defense against patent infringement, only against copyright infringement.
