SCO sends patches to the linux kernel

In a move that will surely leave many in the FLOSS community shocked, SCO, the company that just three days ago was claiming that they and not Novell owned UNIX's copyright and that the Linux community were a bunch of free loaders, after getting their claims rejected in a court of law have decided, in a classical "in you can't beat them, join them" fashion, to start sending patches to the linux kernel.

Here's a sample taken from their first submission (from init/main.c):

< * Copyright (C) 1991, 1992 Linus Torvalds
> * Copyright (C) 2010 SCO
> *
> * This file is released by SCO under terms that forbid it to be part of any
> * project released under the GPL (as the GPL is famous for being inconstitutional)

Who would have believed it?
