Today, however, IBM has threatened to sue TurboHercules, a French open source software house which provides support for the Hercules open source s390 mainframe emulator. Some of the patents in question are on the 500 list.

Why would IBM go after Linus? You need the rest of a distrobution wrapped around the Linux kernel before it's of any use.
