Yes, also checking for other license details. I'd be very suprised if there's something non-free (by Linux's definition) in the license header, but caveats in the actual code might have snuck in.

That is nice ideal, but I doubt whether this project will (for the forseeable future) have enough manpower and will to actually read through everything contained in Linux Kernel (>260MB at the moment).
