    I think it also happens if you run a binary compiled on a
    machine with such a glibc on another which has an older kernel
    or the same glibc, but compiled with no --enable-kernel or an
    older version set.

    Can't test it, but:

    My glibc was compiled with --enable-kernel=2.4.5.

    A binary compiled with it:

    % file /usr/bin/lsattr
    /usr/bin/lsattr: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.4.5, dynamically linked (uses shared libs), stripped

    A binary that came with the default glibc:

    % file /usr/bin/ansi2knr
    /usr/bin/ansi2knr: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.0.0, dynamically linked (uses shared libs), stripped

    Yes, the default glibc was compiled without --enable-kernel, so
    is compatible with >= 2.0.0.

    Anyway, not a kernel problem. I have also seen it when trying
    to emulate my binaries on FreeBSD, which has compatibility set
    to... 2.4.2.
