Subject[PATCH] x86: vdso: change time() prototype to match __vdso_time()
Date
gcc-8 warns that time() is an alias for __vdso_time() but the two
have different prototypes:

arch/x86/entry/vdso/vclock_gettime.c:327:5: error: 'time' alias between functions of incompatible types 'int(time_t *)' {aka 'int(long int *)'} and 'time_t(time_t *)' {aka 'long int(long int *)'} [-Werror=attribute-alias]
int time(time_t *t)
^~~~
arch/x86/entry/vdso/vclock_gettime.c:318:16: note: aliased declaration here

I could not figure out whether this is intentional, but I see that
changing it to return time_t avoids the warning.

Returning 'int' from time() is also a bit questionable, as it causes an
overflow in y2038 even on 64-bit architectures that use a 64-bit time_t
type. On 32-bit architecture with 64-bit time_t, time() should always
be implement by the C library by calling a (to be added) clock_gettime()
variant that takes a sufficiently wide argument.
