Article: "Google wants Android to use regular Linux kernel, potentially improving updates and security"
From the article:
The idea proposed by Google engineers is to build an interface in the Linux kernel that would allow proprietary device drivers to run as plug-in modules, so no modifications to the kernel itself are needed. In simple terms, it would bring the modularity of Project Treble to regular Linux.
Could this be of help to UBports?

Wasn't that something the Nvidia developers have been lobbying for a long time as well?
I am somewhat doubtful that the kernel devs will change their mind on that so easily.
IMHO, I also think in a way it is good not to allow it, as it gives a strong incentive to open source drivers which is ultimalty the much better solution than offering some driver api. Edit: detailed explanation
