I ran the test (32 and 64 bit) on my latest work (but back-ported to
4.9) and it passes. I did not change __vdso_clock_getres or the fallback
(syscall) handler in the patch series though, so the failure has me
wondering. Could you re-run the test with latest to be sure, and I will
look into setting up to test with a ToT kernel (after the thanksgiving

Using bionic libc, with advance modifications to utilize
__vdso_clock_getres; required in order to support the test.

NB: in AOSP _today_ bionic does _not_ propagate the errno correctly on
the __vdso_clock_gettime vdso path and will understandably fail the
similar tests. The public rubber stamp of __vdso_clock_gettime code to
support __vdso_clock_getres will not work. errno propagation issue will
be fixed in bionic.
