You have no idea what you're talking about. This was repeated a hundred times, but apparently not often enough: it is impossible to let NVIDIA use DMA-BUF, because it's a direct violation of the kernel's license. The symbol names are just symbolic, they are GPL no matter whether they are marked as such or not. All Alan Cox did was point that out.
