Alternative License for Parts of MTD?

I work with the real-time operating system RTEMS (  The 
license of this system is GPL with an exception that allows static linking 
without restrictions:

This is very similar to the eCos license:

RTEMS has currently no framework for flash devices.  It would be nice if we can 
use parts of the MTD system, e.g. the header files and device independent 
support routines like "drivers/mtd/nand/nand_base.c".  Is it possible to 
release parts of the MTD code under the RTEMS or eCos license, or would you 
categorically refuse this?

Have a nice day!
