How is it compatible only one way? You can put GPL code in BSD-3  
software, and BSD-3 code in GPL software. In neither case does the  
license change (it both remains either GPL/BSD, as unless you are the  
copyright holder, you cannot change the license, unless permission is  
explicitly granted).
