Subject: [PATCH v2 00/10] x86 and others: vsyscall and vdso cleanups

This is v2.  I'm resending it because the fallout from the 3.16 changes
seems to have settled down, and because arm is about to run in to the
same problem that I ran in to, which is fixed in the big cross-arch
patch.

Patch 1 fixes a minor bug; it might make sense to backport it.

Patch 3 removes the vsyscall mapping when vsyscall=none.

Patch 4 and 5 remove some unnecessary vvars.  gtod is the only one left now.

Patch 9 is a big cross-arch cleanup.  The old code was supposedly
generic, but it was only useful for ia64, and it was actively harmful
for lots of other architectures.

Patch 10 makes vsyscall emulation optional.  It's hidden under
CONFIG_EXPERT.

If this should be split or reordered, please let me know.

NB: I wouldn't be surprised if Nathan Lynch ends up wanting patch 9 for
ARM's upcoming vdso, so it would be nice to get at least that patch into
an upstream-pointing git tree somewhere.  I'm not sure what the
appropriate tree is.

Changes from v1:
 - Rebased to 3.16-rc3.
 - The last patch is new.
