Sequent is now part of IBM, is it not? One has to assume that the Monterey agreements included cross-licensing of patents between SCO and IBM, and so SCO is probably covered in its use of the technique described in the patent.
But then again, since IBM is supporting Linux, there is no problem with Linux using the technique (as opposed to the actual code) either. If IBM contibuted code that used the technique (under GPL) then the technique is OK for that use even if the exact implementation were not.
