Looks like socket(2) is failing with ENOBUFS.  This means just what it
says -- you have limited resources, or smbclient thinks you do.

Do other network client apps (like ftp) work?  If not, it isn't a Samba
problem; likely something to do with s390 networking (which I seem to
remember is rather complex, since it involves driving virtual devices,
just like a lot of the s390).

Probably nobody on this list has much experience with this rather young

I do have to say I like your machine name.  The compiled kernel image
file, "vmlinux", takes on a whole new meaning with the s390....
