   The Linux kernel is a compilation of many separate and independent
   works (computer programs are protected as literaly works modulo the
   AFC test) under copyright law.

The Linux kernel under copyright law is a single entity.  It sure
isn't a compilation.  Next thing we know is that by mingling text in
some manner is a compilation, and not a deriviate work.

   In fact, not everything in the Linux kernel is under the GPL.

To comply with the GNU GPL, everything in Linux must be licensed under
the GNU GPL, as stated by the GNU GPL.  See section 2.
