So far I know everything is compiled against glibc, including kernel.

Slight error there: the kernel itself does not use glibc. It can't, as
it runs before libraries are loaded.

However glibc is compiled against kernel headers, so it is (in principle) possible to break the system by using version of kernel other than the one glibc has been compiled against (it should happen only very rarely though).
