How about GPU 2D & 3D support for Vivante GC2000?

There seem to be some open source driver out there but its GPL....

GPU acceleration for 2D and 3D is a must for us and if it is only a matter
of a few programmers time and effort we can invest in it.

Can there be any blocking things like proprietary software/hardware etc?
