And you can use a big array with your binary code and made the source public:
This code is GPL
char *code={big array of code}

void do_somenthin(){
void (*fun) = code;

(well, I dosn't remember the exact sintax of pointer to funtioncs but ... )

You can put the binary driver like "microcode", and GPL
