I have not check the Terms in full depth here:
and IANAL.

As I see it:

- Mentor organizations must run an active open source or free software project.
- Have produced and released software under an OSI approved license.

( is all covered.

Important aspects for GSoC are:

- there is a larger community for the student to announce his work,
reach out to and impact: in this case, Linux kernel community, kernel
workflows group, patchwork project team; we are well covered here.
- it is published under an open-source license, that is clear how to cover here.
- it becomes at some point a part of the larger software project. I
would suggest that the work is in the end documented with pointers to
sources etc. in the kernel maintainer handbook, i.e.,, with a
suitable section on the topic. That gives a maintainer (that has time
to read the kernel documentation) a fair chance of finding out about
this tool.
