Vanilla Oprofile does'nt use any patch for 2.4, module is built as part
of oprofile (directory module/) and patch the syscall table at rutime to
work (ia64/x86-64 and x86 version). Redhat use some patch for their 2.4
kernel more similar to the oprofile module in 2.6 kernel, prolly available
in their kernel rpms source.
2.4 module provided by oprofile can't do callgraph, if you want this it's
easier to start from a RH 2.6 patch
