Correct, the choice of C library only affects userspace, not kernel. 

Last time I tried building, I ran into problems with both uClibc and 
glibc. I couldn't convince their build systems to pass the --fix-v4bx 
kludge to the linker. However I was able to build musl (which is yet 
another libc implementation).
