[alsa-devel] alsa license question

hi all,

i am currently working on an alsa driver for the digigram lx6464es
interface, based on the sources of the windows driver.

since i would like to include some parts of the windows source code,
(mainly the header files with register declarations) to the alsa driver,
i have a few question:
- is it ok, if these files don't match the coding style of the linux kernel?
- digigram assured, that i am allowed to include source code to the
linux driver. most of the files have the copyright notice:
is this statement ok, or do i need to replace the `ALL RIGHTS RESERVED'
with a gpl-compatible license note?
- is there any repository for alsa driver documentation, provided by the
manufacturer? digigram provided the windows driver for the lx6464es,
mentioning that this source is `freely accessible to the GNU / ALSA
community', so if there is a repository like that, the source package
should probably be archived there.

thanks, tim
