It is possible for a system with an ARMv8 timer to run a 32-bit kernel.
When this happens we will unconditionally have the vDSO code remove the
__vdso_gettimeofday and __vdso_clock_gettime symbols because
cntvct_functional() returns false since it does not match that
compatibility string.

Hi all,

This was found by one of our customers and the following test program
below can be used to find whether the "bug" is fixed or not.

The Fixes tag is much after the arm_arch_timer.c gained support for the
ARMv8 timers, which is why it is being referenced.

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <dlfcn.h>

#define ARM_LDSO_NAME   "linux-vdso.so.1"

int main(int argc, char **argv)
{
        void *h, *sym[2];

        h = dlopen(ARM_LDSO_NAME, RTLD_NOW);
        if (!h) {
                fprintf(stderr, "failed top dlopen\n");
                return 1;
        }

        sym[0] = dlsym(h, "__vdso_gettimeofday");
        sym[1] = dlsym(h, "__vdso_clock_gettime");
        if (!sym[0] && !sym[1]) {
                fprintf(stderr, "Kernel does not provide symbols, check DT!\n");
        } else {
                fprintf(stdout, "Kernel provides vDSO symbols!\n");
        }

out:
        return dlclose(h);
}
