You should be aware that the Erlang Public License is incompatible
with the GPL. You'll have legal trouble if your linked-in driver is
considered a derivative work of both the Erlang runtime and that GPL
library. See http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-faq.html#GPLPluginsInNF
for some more information.
It would be better to ask an actual lawyer. You can also try emailing
the FSF or SFLC.
