You probably want the CVS source from vger.samba.org

I doubt we'll ever see reiser on sparc anytime soon. Depending on your
needs you may want to check out jfs, xfs and ext3. I use ext3 mainly for
the large RAID's so the fsck time is gone. You may want performance,
which would take xfs or jfs (never used either one).

Just ignore them. This is a LFS enabled system. Those syscalls are the
libc trying to execute LFS syscalls, which the 2.2.x kernel's don't
support. It falls back to the normal syscalls though.
