That's irrelevant. If someone says "the kernel" on a general debian list
they mean "the linux kernel." Most people can figure that out. Right or
wrong that'll be the case until enough people are using some other
kernel that confusion is likely. Complaining that such a term isn't
inclusive enough is unproductive.
