     24Linus Torvald's following exceptions to the "GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE 
     25Version 2, June 1991" apply to the Kitten kernel ("the kernel") as well: 
     26 
     27   NOTE! This copyright does *not* cover user programs that use kernel 
     28 services by normal system calls - this is merely considered normal use 
     29 of the kernel, and does *not* fall under the heading of "derived work". 
     30 
     31 Also note that the only valid version of the GPL as far as the kernel 
     32 is concerned is _this_ particular version of the license (ie v2, not 
     33 v2.2 or v3.x or whatever), unless explicitly otherwise stated.
