Same comment as with the INF file for g_ether:

If you're giving Microsoft credit for this,
you should make sure we have the right to
redistribute the changes ...

To the extent that your patches reduce our
ability to redistribute these INF files and
thus use these drivers with MS-Windows ... NAK.

It's my understanding that pulling fragments
from INF files comes under "fair use" and
thus copyright does not need to be assigned.
Microsoft publishes these things with the
expectation they'll be copied/pasted all over...
