clock_gettime() has been supported for a very long time, so both
time() and gettimeofday() can be trivial wrappers around that.

Nothing really should be using the timezone argument, so I'd
just ignore that in nolibc. (it's a little trickier for /sbin/init
setting the initial timezone, but I hope we can ignore that here).

clock_gettime() as a function call that takes a timespec argument
in turn should be a wrapper around either sys_clock_gettime64 (on
32-bit architectures) or sys_clock_gettime_old() (on 64-bit
architectures, or as a fallback on old 32-bit kernels after
clock_gettime64 fails).

On normal libc implementations, the low-level
sys_clock_gettime64() and sys_clock_gettime_old(), whatever
they are named, would call vdso first and then fall back
to the syscall, but I don't think that's necessary for nolibc.

I'd define them the same as the kernel, with
sys_clock_gettime64() taking a __kernel_timespec, and
sys_clock_gettime_old() takeing a __kernel_old_timespec.
