So the problem is not GPL compatibility: it's GPL code being distributed
without source.  Can we get written permission from the manufacturer?
Without either source or written permission to do without we cannot

Note that the GPL does not require that the firmware build from source on
Linux.  We are not obligated (by the GPL) to supply a compiler.
