Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 5.4 11/58] MIPS: Disable VDSO time functionality on microMIPS
Date
From: Paul Burton <paulburton@kernel.org>

[ Upstream commit 07015d7a103c4420b69a287b8ef4d2535c0f4106 ]

A check we're about to add to pick up on function calls that depend on
bogus use of the GOT in the VDSO picked up on instances of such function
calls in microMIPS builds. Since the code appears genuinely problematic,
and given the relatively small amount of use & testing that microMIPS
sees, go ahead & disable the VDSO for microMIPS builds.
