I believe GPLv3 is compatible with the Apache 2.0 license.  The resulting
combined work must be distributed under the GPLv3 with the additional
restriction clause exercised, as permitted by the GPLv3.  The relevant
additional restriction added to the license of the combined work is the
Apache 2.0 patent provision.

This response is based on an answer by RMS to a similar question on
another mailing list.
