I don't think BSD is good for this, and a straight GPL wouldn't really be the right thing either.
It is not possible to distribute a BIOS in a completly libary type form.When it comes to a manufature making changes to support a peice of hardware on their boards, this means they must release their changes. If this code is a dependant on a peice of propritary or sub licensed peice of hardware they may not be able to (or just won't) use our BIOS.
IF the finaly product is VERY modular and VERY flexable, then a regular GPL might not cause problems.
