I guess I might be missing something subtle, here.  Is there some kind
of rewrite-from-scratch of the Linuxulator going on at the moment,
because obviously the statfs64 syscall used to be implemented (until
recently) in the i386 Linux kernel compat code, but now it has vanished?
(Your response above makes it sound like it never was present at all.)

Nevertheless, because it seems like statfs64 is vital to having the
Tivoli Storage Manager client work (it just hangs around and the backup
fails without it), then I figure at least I consider it "important" and,
yes, I'd be willing to help test. :-)

(Working backups are a good thing.:)
