You're right. It doesn't make any functional change, so I'm completely
fine with taking it on the .32 track.

For the time being, please hold on, as I'm going to split the patch into
a series to make reviewing easier. But to be honest, the current content
of vdso-layout.lds.S is such mess that I'm convinced it must have been
done in a big hurry (and then moved around a few times, so a quick
glance at git-blame doesn't tell you that the most messy pieces have
been there since the very beginning).
