But under which license?  Probably the same as they open sourced solaris. 
Nothing from solaris can cross pollinate to linux without violating a
license.  (I always thought the GNU crowd were fanatics, but now I'm
rethinking that stance.)

IBM, of course, would prefer to use the GPL, as that'd be in their
interests.
