Marek is already out for holidays, I gave your tree a try but kernel from
that branch was failing to boot on TM2(e).

Then I have cherry-picked 5 patches from the branch that seemed to
be missing in next-20190628:

28028f3174cf1 (HEAD) MAINTAINERS: Fix Andy's surname and the directory entries of VDSO
ec8f8e4bf2206 arm64: vdso: Fix compilation with clang older than 8
721882ebb5729 arm64: compat: Fix __arch_get_hw_counter() implementation
7027fea977a3d arm64: Fix __arch_get_hw_counter() implementation
10b305853fe22 lib/vdso: Make delta calculation work correctly
48568d8c7f479 (tag: next-20190628, linux-next/master) Add linux-next specific files for 20190628

With those 5 additional patches on top of next-20190628 the problem
is not observed any more. date, ping, etc. seems to be working well.
