Two possibilities:

1.  Upgrade to 4.1.2
2.  Run the following script (as super user).  Don't forget to make a
    copy of /vmunix before you start!  No warranties, neither expressed
    or implied, of usability for any purpose whatsoever etc. etc.


#!/bin/csh -f
# Sun-$Revision: 8.0 $
# script to fix SunOS 4.1.1 kernel for Self
# Thanks to Tom Wadlow and Barry Riddle
