You can easily make such a Windows driver be GPL by making your changes be GPL. I guess the issue of driver signing is worse, IIRC MS doesn't allow unsigned drivers from Vista onwards without boot code trickery. MS wouldn't sign a driver for free, users wouldn't install something that opens their system to (more) rootkits.
