Hyman, please stop ignoring the facts.

Facts such as

LINUX® AND RED HAT® APPLICATIONS

This agreement governs the use of the Software and any updates to the
Software, regardless of the delivery mechanism. The Software is a
collective work under U.S. Copyright Law. "

Note that Red Hat's collective work contains tons of non-GPL components
even "incompatible" with the GPL.
