C'mon, dak. IBM.DE's kernel patches (I don't think that everything 
went to the 390 branch only), Cox & Co. can surely assign something 
(e.g. some old stuff that was developed before they went on payroll 
of RedHat, SuSE, IBM, OSDL, etc.) to the FSF.

"The Foundation notes that despite the alarmist statements SCO's 
 employees have made, the Foundation has not been sued, nor has SCO, 
 despite our requests, identified any work whose copyright the 
 Foundation holds-including all of IBM's modifications to the kernel 
 for use with IBM's S/390 mainframe computers, assigned to the 
 Foundation by IBM--that SCO asserts infringes its rights in any way."

alexander.
