I can try but will be very tough since I have to go through the code to
get familiar with it and, as mentioned before, its not part of my dayjob,
so time will be a problem. Developing from scratch takes much more time
than fixing something.

I will fix the coding style before my first submission to dri-devel,
which should be in January after I have setup my desktop with the
hardware for testing.

The copyright thing - I am sure Teddy can talk to his company and will
confirm that we can change it to the way kernel code is done.
