I'm sorry. I made a mistake. I misunderstood the GPL. I got
uncomfortable with now how there is Octave code that is meant to be
linked to non-free libraries, so I asked again, and it seems I was
wrong about it.

Please unpublish this code. We do not want GPL-infringing Octave code
out there. Instead, pressure the hardware providers to give you free
libraries to the hardware that you already bought and thus you should
own and do whatever you please with, including modfiying the libraries
that talk to it.
