I assume you mean GPLv2-only code (as opposed to GPLv2-or-later). First
step would be to contact the copyright holders and ask them to relicense
under v3-compatible terms (e.g. GPLv2-or-later).  Chances are they didn't
chose these terms as an act of hostility, but were simply being zealous
about allowing something before they knew what it is.

If that doesn't work, we'll always have Par^W clean room

  how) you may access your data; but nobody's threatening your freedom: we
  still allow you to remove your data and not access it at all."
