VDSO gettimeofday() x86_64 linux 3.2

I noticed recently that my get time of day calls are quite a bit
slower than I would have expected; and it would see that a likely
cause is that they are not going via vdso, but rather a system call.

In older kernels there was kernel.vsyscall64 parameter to enable them,
but this seems to be gone in later kernel releases. What config
option or parameter might I be missing that could cause gettimeofday()
to use the fallback methods?
