It is indeed my viewpoint that the 'bzImage' kernel image we ship is
either a derivative or collective work based on the GPL'd kernel source
code.

It is also my viewpoint that the Linux source tree, as a whole, is
either a derivative or collective work based on the GPL'd kernel source
code.

I'm surprised you affect to disagree with either of those, but it
doesn't seem that you're likely to change your mind -- so perhaps it's
best we just leave it at that.
