I have tried modification of arch/x86_64/kernel/x8664_ksyms.c

extern void *sys_call_table[];

and even after complete cleanup (make mrproper), rebuild and reboot I have the same error message:

  libafs: module license 'unspecified' taints kernel.
  Failed to find address of sys_call_table

However I was checking output of configure and it reports:

  checking if kernel uses MODVERSIONS... no
  checking which kernel modules to build... MP SP
  configure: WARNING: Cannot determine sys_call_table status. assuming it isn't exported

while I have modversions support:

cat linux-2.6.6/include/config/modversions.h 

File KERNEL/include/linux/modversions.h used by test in configure doesn't exist and I didn't found equivalent file in 2.6 tree. And sys_call_table test depends on modversions ...

What must be done to make 2.6 modversions supported in openafs?
