Forgive me but what has the kernel licence terms have to do with the

The driver is not incorporated into the kernel so there is no problem
with distributing it, right?
When I installed the drivers from the NVidia repository, I got a new kernel.

That doesn't "compute" :-) . If you received a new kernel when you installed the driver then it was purely a conicidence as far as I am concerned.

But then never having used the nvidia repo (I always download directly from the nVidia site and then compile the driver to suit the kernel) there may be such a connexion which you experienced :-) .
