Is the bassline on Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" same as RS's "Gimme Shelter"?

Can anyone tell me if the bassline on Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" has been lifted/sampled from The Rolling Stones' "Gimme Shelter"? Or, is it laid out musically similar to "Gimme Shelter"? To the ear, they spund very much alike. And if that is the case, would the Stones get royalties and wrtting credits for it?

Gimmee Shelter's bassline is really just a slowed down Chuck Berry riff- so the Rolling in the Deep bassline is more of a true classic stock rock and roll line. It doesn't sound sampled.

not if the overall melody of the song is different. drummers have been copying drum fills forever. the stones, as mentioned before me, have openly (and proudly) copied chuck berry. even if the bassline is similar...it would just be a bassline...not enough for songwriting credits.
