no, it is not. Instead, look for arch/i386/kernel/process.c:sys_fork().
But the system call entry points are in arch/i386/kernel/entry.S. So what
used to be system_call.s is now entry.S but that is not what the reference
is to. If you want fork(2) system call it is in arch/i386/kernel/process.c

If you really care, send Linus a patch that replaces the mention of
system_call.s with something better.
