Subject[PATCH 1/3] lib/vdso: Delay mask application in do_hres()
Date
do_hres() in the vDSO generic library masks the hw counter value
immediately after reading it.

Postpone the mask application after checking if the syscall fallback is
enabled, in order to be able to detect a possible fallback for the
architectures that have masks smaller than ULLONG_MAX.
