There's no way to know, but its entirely possible that there isn't a single
modified line of any GPL'ed code anywhere in their system. They could be
running an entirely stock version of everything, and be under zero
obligation to do anything except include a small note somewhere to
customers that if they really want to download the source code to glibc,
the kernel etc, then look in the following places. This is precisely what
Apple does with Darwin, which includes quite a number of GPL'ed components.
