Out of interest would it be possible to do either of the following two things?
a) Place a statement somewhere in the kernel source stating that if a copyright holder for a piece of code is not found or is unknown the copyright reverts to Linus or the OSDL or some body like that.
Per copyright law (in the USA and all similar jurisdictions), ownership transfers of copyright title must be in writing, executed by the owner seeking to reassign ownership. So, no.
