I'd keep GPL for everything except custom modification of nuttx code
(if even required).

There is no problem to have mixed BSD and GPL code in the same
repository as long as the header of each file has clear mention.
All our drivers (even for board / platforms / ...) will be new files
and all of L1 as well.

Keeping in sync with upstream shouldn't be that hard if done
periodically. I also assume they don't rewrite their whole API every
month ...

Cheers,
