"The MIT license" isn't really a thing.  The closest is the X11
license[1], but this not applicable here either since the text in the
drivers does not refer to X11 trademarks etc.

You can either use "GPL" which would be correct for a Linux kernel
module since the alternate only applies when distributed separately from
Linux ("or, when distributed separately from the Linux kernel or
incorporated into other software packages, subject to the following
license:"); or you can use "GPL and additional rights".

(Or you could just leave it as-is since "Dual BSD/GPL" is close enough.)
