UAPI syscall exception interpretation

Consider a file: ftpclient.c
Only include is: #include <sys/socket.h>
Then a few hundred lines of personal code.
Then compiler/linker take in ftpcliebt.c and produce a.out (statically or dynamically linked, consider both cases if it makes a licensing difference)

Does the Linux-syscall-note say that a.out can ALL be under any license of your choice?

Or do you have to note that your binary is under License X and also includes code which is under license GPL-2.0-WITH-Linux-syscall-note?
