    That might be a problem with your toolchain.
    Other mentions of that error message on Google
    suggest that it's due to a kernel header problem.
    I bet your toolchain uses kernel headers from 2.4.21 or earlier...
    check includes/asm-ppc64/unistd.h to see if it's got the
    line
    /* On powerpc a system call basically clobbers the same registers like a
    in it. If not, it may be missing the patch mentioned below.
