[linux-dvb] Question about GPL & closed source drivers

Can Linux DVB project drivers derived from non-GPL closed source SDKs be distributed in binary form only legally? It seems most if not all of Linux-DVB is standard GPL. And if that requires driver source to be GPL'd as well, it seems like it closes the Linux community off a bit from companies wanting to provide driver support to Linux while still keeping trade secrets protected.
