to arch/powerpc/kernel/ppc_ksyms.c and/or arch/ppc/kernel/ppc_ksyms.c
should do it.

This should be fixed in the openafs code - the right fix would
probably be to add a configure check for the availability of
do_signal, and define out the probing code if it's not available,
similar to what was done for init_mm.
With a recent kernel like 2.6.27 the system call table won't be
writable and you should be relying on keyring based PAGs anyway.
