Possibly because you did the same thing I did and noted the absence of
any output from the checksyscalls script (which is run at the start of
the kernel build) and thought that indicated we were completely up to
date with syscall implementations.

I now see that the checksyscalls script compares the syscalls of an arch
against those of x86 32bit syscalls.  If the syscall is not implemented
in x86 32bit (which is the case for accept4 as it is provided via a
different syscall on x86 32bit) then no warning is generated if it is
