SCO sold a Linux distribution.  Presumably they offered source code for the
Linux kernel as required by the GPL.  Would not any code owned by SCO in
that distribution be legally available under the GPL as a result?

It's SCO's code.  SCO is releasing it under the GPL.  It doesn't really
matter how SCO's code got in that release, does it?
