I am already quite familiar with this discussion.

In your initial post, you mentioned glibc.  glibc is not a kernel
loadable module.  It only uses the Linux kernel syscall interface.
The discussions you mention above do not apply to glibc.

In fact, I believe that those discussions support my initial point,
which is that there is no clear legal position for software which uses
an API which is only defined by a single GPL implementation.
