So without GPL, the thing wouldn't go beyond producing warmth (kernel). Then, if on, it wouldn't know what to do (uboot). Then, you wouldn't hear no sound at all (alsa). You couldn't store nor read anything on the SD card (ext). You couldn't turn on the wifi (atheros). Then, you probably couldn't connect to your wifi router (wpasupplicant).
If all that didn't exist - who cared about Android?
Multiple years of manpower all over the world went into the development, testing, and bug-filing for these components (and even a few hours of mine, filing a few bugs for alsa and atheros) and you can't just go on and pretend you did that all yourself.
A few examples of how it is supposed to be:
