messing with syscalls

Hi all, im no newb to linux coding (C, C++, Perl, assembly, and so on =] ), but I am a newbie to kernel coding (besides LKM's). Its been suggested to me to start off by hacking a syscall into the kernel, or modifying another. I know how to do this fine in an LKM, problem is the syscall table isnt exported anymore... so rather than patch my kernel to export the table, how would I go about writing a new syscall or hooking one in the kernel itself?

thanks =]
