I currently do not have a RHEL3 build available on S/390, but I can say for
sure that (albeit with a few patches to deal with SuSE specific things) it
works perfectly fine with the 2.4.19 kernel (2.4.19-3suse-SMP to be exact).
No problem there with finding the sys_call_table.

RH may have made some changes to the sys_call_table contents or handling that
break the code used in OpenAFS to find it.  Look in src/afs/LINUX/osi_module.c,
routine init_module.
