Re: [Question] How to handle GPLv3 packages?

Yes I did something similar initially using BBMASK to minimize the
build and in the end requesting them to supply a more minimal build
setup. The end result was not a pure BSP layer because we needed some
other things to be able to use other parts of the HW. We could
probably have done that our self but did not really have the time to
set up our own solution for it.

Qualcomm, I know that one :( As integrator for a product
you must minimize the impact of the BSP SW delivery and thus allow only
bootloader, kernel and low level libraries to be compiled using the
BSP vendor delivery, e.g. their meta layers. I BBMASK away most of their
high level SW changes, e.g. systemd and other odd patches which I don't need.
At Daimler, I put my foot down, and forced them to cleanly rewrite the
BSP into an actual BSP layer before we would set up official builds
with it. It took several months, but eventually we got there.
