And that granting permission to violate a license for fourteen days, consequence-free, does not constitute adding restrictions to that license
Are you maybe under the impression that the conditions of the kernel license require anyone who distributes kernel object code to distribute the source code along with it? It doesn't. It just says if someone who gets the object code from you asks for the source code, you have to give it. And it doesn't say how quickly.
Your phrasing "permission to violate a license" confuses the issue too. A license isn't something one can violate. A license doesn't require anyone to do anything. It just gives permission. The only thing to be violated is copyright, which you violate when you distribute code without a license, which is what you're doing if you don't meet the conditions of any license which was offered to you.
