No you don’t. INT 2E is no longer the way the system transfers control
from user to kernel mode.

If you explain which native API calls you’re trying to hook, we can
probably help you find a robust solution.

More to the point, hooking calls is a dubious practice, at best, and
should be discouraged. It seems to me that a lot of people have got the
idea that it’s quite alright to hook left and right, in order to put
their favorite widget in front of whatever.

No problem if one is playing around, or wants to investigate behavior,
or is debugging some unrelated problem. But hooking is absoutely to be
avoided as a regular practice, most especially for any production setup.
This advice is not being offered because of some delicacy of feeling on
this writer’s part. If your hooking code is installed on a production
system that breaks, you’re setting yourself up for blame, whether the
problem was in fact due to your code or not.

May I conclude by observing that it is a tough programming assignment to
get hooking precisely right, in every imaginable and unimaginable
situation?
