I see two options:
- Publish your original code (not including the semicolon and long cast
  patches) as an out-of-tree driver at github or some other open source
  repository site, with whatever license you want, and ask
  LibreHardwareMonitor pull it from there.
- Submit the driver yourself into LibreHardwareMonitor, again not
  including the problematic changes, with whatever license you want.
