Android uses user-space .so "modules" to interface with hardware. Such files, per the kernel's own licensing, are off-limits to the GPL
The kernel's licence does not say such files are off-limits - this belief of yours is completely unfounded. The Linux COPYING says that "user programs that use kernel services by normal system calls" are not subject to the kernel's licence.
