Building Linux Device Drivers on FreeBSD

Linux has a large amount of device drivers for hardware not supported on FreeBSD, especially USB devices (see here for a related discussion). Not rarely, such drivers have been written based on information derived by protocol sniffing, reverse engineering and the like. This makes the code highly undocumented, and renders the porting effort extremely error prone.
