Default linux compat and linux-only drivers

Hi. I had been recently running into some hardware that runs fine under linux using drivers that come with the kernel, but aren't supported nativelly by BSD. And I had the curiosity to ask. Can the linux-compat package act as a sort of wrapper to allow the user to use unsupported devices via linux drivers "wrapper" in the linux-compat package?
