You figured out (in your subsequent reply) that I was indeed talking
about arm32 ;).

So clock_gettime() on arm32 always falls back to the syscall?

"it should be" or "it is" on arm32?

If, on arm32, clock_gettime() is (would be?) handled in the vdso
entirely, who checks for the pointer outside the accessible address
space (as per the clock_gettime man page)?

I'm fine with such check as long as it is consistent across arm32 and
arm64 compat. Or even on arm64 native between syscall fallback and vdso
execution. I haven't figured out yet whether this is the case.

It states 'clk_id specified is not supported on this system'. Fair
enough but it doesn't say that it returns -EINVAL only if res == NULL.
You also don't explain why __cvdso_clock_getres_time32() doesn't already
detect an invalid clk_id on arm64 compat (but does it on arm32).
