a) not that i know of
b) there afaik are massive licence issues since the linux dvb drivers
are gpl and opensolaris isn't (its CDDL).
also see http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/license-list.html and scroll
down to CDDL.
So, a module covered by the GPL and a module covered by the CDDL
cannot legally be linked together.
so as far as my interpretation (i'm not a lawyer) is concerned, its a
total no-go. sun shot itself into the foot with this license.
sorry to be the bad-news-teller.
