FWIW, I have never heard anyone use the term “kFreeBSD” in a

What about using “kernel of FreeBSD” and indicating that the

“Debian can use either Linux or the kernel of FreeBSD (called
kFreeBSD) at its core”
I replaced “the Linux kernel” with just “Linux”, but that may be a
personal preference (i.e., according to me, “the Linux kernel” sounds
as if Linux is not itself just a kernel). Alternatively one could use:
“Debian can use either the Linux kernel or the kernel of FreeBSD
(called kFreeBSD) at its core”
