Dlink probably violate GPL again with their DIR-45X ?

I've bought a DIR-450 and has downloaded its source tar ball from
But I've found they did release the complete compilation environment.
And I've opened the box and found its flash is a 8MB "MX 29LV640BTTC".
However their kernel source says it is a 4MB flash. #$ <at> #$
"/dlink/dir45x/Kernel/linux2425/drivers/mtd/maps/physmap.c" <-- the mtd memory partition.
They just release the source of kernel and several well-known GPL applications.
They didn't release the source of the toolchians.
They also didn't release the compilation configuration such as main Makefile so I couldn't build the kernel with correct configuration.
They also didn't release the executable tools for me to make a image header.
I have a question first. Do they violated GPL under such kind of situation?
Could anyone here help me to push them to release a complete buildable environment?
Thanks a lot.
