If the Linux companies moved to Europe we would gain two things:
1) Patents wouldn't hurt Linux at much directly.
2) European politicians would have a harder job introducing software patents here since it would hurt European companies over American companies.
3) The software patents in the US could be seen as trade barriers preventing those European companies entering the US market. There would thus be a pressure on the US to abolish the system rather than a pressure on Europe to copy it.
