Yeap, this issue is came from glibc rt testcases(tst-cputimer1,
tst-cputimer2, tst-cputimer3, tst-timer4, tst-timer5). The above test
cases include timer_create syscall with sigevent.sigev_notify = SIGEV_THREAD.
They failed when they compiled as armeb elf and run on aarch64_be kernel.
When I try to fix it, I found sys_mq_notify is similar.
