The standard eCos Assignment can be found at
The second paragraph says:
Upon thirty days prior written notice, eCosCentric Limited agrees to
grant me non-exclusive rights to use the Work (i.e. just my changes
and enhancements, not eCos as a whole) as I see fit; (and
eCosCentric's rights shall otherwise continue unchanged).
So what you want is not a problem. Simply invoke this clause.
