If you build glibc with --enable-kernel=X, it'll more or less assume
that all system calls that are implemented on x86 in kernel version X
will be there.
This is specifically not true for the f*at() system calls, which were
in x86 since 2.6.15 or so (don't remember) but were only hooked up in
the ARM kernel port much later. glibc _will_ break if you configure
with --enable-kernel=2.6.16 on ARM even if you do run 2.6.16. (Been
there, done that.)
