I misread the #ifdef'ery in asm/processor.h. So with 4K pages,
TASK_SIZE_32 is (1UL<<32)-PAGE_SIZE. However, with 64K pages _and_
CONFIG_KUSER_HELPERS, TASK_SIZE_32 is 1UL<<32 and the check is removed
by the compiler.

With the 4K build, __vdso_clock_gettime starts as:

00000194 <__vdso_clock_gettime>:
194: f511 5f80 cmn.w r1, #4096 ; 0x1000
198: d214 bcs.n 1c4 <__vdso_clock_gettime+0x30>
19a: b5b0 push {r4, r5, r7, lr}
1c4: f06f 000d mvn.w r0, #13
1c8: 4770 bx lr

With 64K pages:

00000194 <__vdso_clock_gettime>:
194: b5b0 push {r4, r5, r7, lr}
1be: bdb0 pop {r4, r5, r7, pc}

I haven't tried but it's likely that the vdsotest fails with 64K pages
and compat enabled (requires EXPERT).

Ah, so it uses UINTPTR_MAX in the test. Fair enough but I don't think
the arm64 check is entirely useful. On arm32, the check was meant to
return -EFAULT for addresses beyond TASK_SIZE that may enter into the
kernel or module space. On arm64 compat, the kernel space is well above
the reach of the 32-bit code.

If you want to preserve some compatibility for this specific test, what
about checking for wrapping around 0, I think it would make more sense.
Something like:

if ((u32)ts > UINTPTR_MAX - sizeof(*ts) + 1)
