Subject[PATCH v4.16-rc5 2/2] x86/vdso: VDSO should handle clock_gettime(CLOCK_MONOTONIC_RAW) without syscall
Date
         This patch allows compilation to succeed with compilers that support -DRETPOLINE -
it was kindly contributed by H.J. Liu in GCC Bugzilla: 84908 :
https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=84908

Apparently the GCC retpoline implementation has a limitation that it cannot
handle switch statements with more than 5 clauses, which vclock_gettime.c's
__vdso_clock_gettime function now contains.

The automated test builds should now succeed with this patch.
