Sorry for my late reply. I see this commit and no other variant of it has
made it into linux-next by now, so I assume this is not getting sent for v5.5
and it's not stopping me from sending my own pull request.

Please let me know if I missed something and this will cause problems.

On a related note: are you still working on the generic lib/vdso support for
powerpc? Without that, future libc implementations that use 64-bit time_t
will have to use the slow clock_gettime64 syscall instead of the vdso,
which has a significant performance impact.

Arnd
