Yeah, it would actually be almost impossible to run the Linux kernel on
its own without any GNU utilities (many of which are included in the
initial ramdisk) - try it and you'll get 'kernel panic - not
syncing...'. GNU is also needed for licensing - without it we wouldn't
have GPL, needed to protect the kernel/os to keep it open source.
