IBM also has license to x86 and a production license (cloning licensing) up to the Pentium level. The current AMD process technology used to make AMD chips comes from IBM via cross licensing. The PowerPC will also be "Opteron Compatible" in the future. The companies are already tied close technologically, but that doesn't mean I see this deal happening, it's just fiction to me.
