from what i understand the question is a contradiction in order to be 100% GNU; Linux couldn't be part of it. linux isn't a GNU product.

Linux is a kernel. The primary software bundled with Linux is usually GNU. A GNU compatible system would just have to have GNU software,.. possibly allowing for other GPL licensed software,..

Besides the Hurd one could also use the kFreeBSD kernel.
Wouldn't be GNU neither, of course. Just saying that one can use GNU without the Linux kernel.
