Based on your needs or requirements, you can select: Downloads for
kernel 2.2 or Downloads for kernel 2.4 to get the modifications (source
patches and OCO modules) needed to build and run LINUX for S/390 and
LINUX for zSeries. These patches are available free of charge and,
except for the patches of strace, which is under 'distributable
license', are distributed under the GPL/LGPL license.
