I don't see the problem. If you call this magic vDSO function and get
a fault, it gets handled. What's the failure mode?

Don't forget the cross-arch issue. We need that structure to have
constant layout so that the -m32 build from the vDSO has the same
layout as in the kernel.

So my only actual objection to the patch is that there should probably
be a comment above the structure reminding people that it needs to
have the same layout on 32-bit, x32, and x86_64. So maybe the entries
should be s32 instead of int, although this doesn't really matter.
