I said the latest and that means 3.1. Moreover you do not need netrpc.c 
as it is but just the part that uses sockets in in kernel space i.e. 
what I've attached.

Be warned that I've just cut it out to help you, without making any 
check. It should be all waht is needed to use sockets in kernel space.
