Nothing stops you looking at the RISC OS source code and using the knowledge gained to improve the Linux driver, you just can't use any of the code directly, and having seen some of it you probably wont want to.

The only issue with GPL comes if you want to integrate chunks of GPL code in to an existing RISC OS component, which isn't that likely. There's nothing stopping an independent module or application being included with in a RISC OS build and making the source available to meet the terms of the GPL.

As for the dual core as long as there isn't a faster single core version to use in preference, you can always find something to do with it, cache coherency or not.
