   Just like some library, the kernel provides a bunch of functions (via 
   syscall linkage) to be called by glibc (and applications) using kernel 
   defined data structures, parameter lists, etc. Not that hard to grok, 

Shows how little you know about what linking means.  When Linux runs,
or when glibc runs, they don't even share the same memory map; it is a
fork/exec like dance.
