There may be others, but at least one that I know of is actively 
working on an open-source nvidia driver with hardware-accelerated 3D. 
I've used his drivers since 2003. The 3D work has begun recently, and 
it's still very early. He's not targetting Linux/BSD/X, but the source 
is MIT-licensed, like the rest of Haiku.

His 3D blog:

As a longtime BeOS user/developer and future Haiku ditto
it's very exciting to read of his progress in the realm of 3D. :)
