It would be difficult, but not impossible. Mozilla already did it, despite not reaching every contributor. I wrote a piece about relicensing Linux back in 2006.
Free software has legal teams and law firms and legal networks nowadays that can work out the hows of doing it when the time comes, but first we need to convince the Linux kernel devs that freedom is valuable or GPLv3 is useful.
