Subject[PATCH v7 01/25] kernel: Standardize vdso_datapage
Date
In an effort to unify the common code for managing the vdso library in
between all the architectures that support it, this patch tries to
provide a common format for the vdso datapage.

As a result of this, this patch generalized the data structures in vgtod.h
from x86 private includes to general includes (include/vdso).
