Are struct timeval and timespec the same between ILP32 and LP64? For
example, __kernel_gettimeofday() assumes TVAL_TV_SEC offset defined in
asm-offsets.c based on the LP64 timeval.
No, ilp32 uses the generic 32-bit data structures, which have a 32-bit
time_t. I guess that means it can work for little-endian but not
I don't think it works for little-endian either. The LP64 struct timeval
is 16 bytes while the ILP32 one is 8 bytes. The VDSO gettimeofday is
storing 16 bytes (stp x10, x11, [x0, #TVAL_TV_SEC])
You are right. Yury asked pointed out the same thing on IRC as well.
Using the 64-bit gettimeofday() will put the right number in the
.tv_sec member on little-endian, but will write zeroes to tv_nsec
and corrupt the memory following it.
Yury also tried it out and noticed that for a (so far) unknown reason,
the vdso gets never used by his glibc build, so it has not triggered
any test case failures.
