One of the stories about this problem is that some of the modem, etho 
card manufacturers may have at one time "borrowed" proprietary code to 
make their hardware work. So, for some of them, there is no interest in 
having their code exposed.

I think that most manufacturers are at the point where they can no 
longer disregard the linux user base. They will eventually all 
contribute if they want to sell more of their hardware.
