Fix VDSO gettimeofday() when called with NULL struct timeval.
The vdso64 portion of patch 74609f4536f2b8fd6a48381bbbe3cd37da20a527 for fixing problems with NULL gettimeofday input mistakenly checks for a null tz field twice, when it should be checking for null tz once, and null tv once; by way of a r10/r11 typo. Any application calling gettimeofday(&tv,NULL) will "fail". This corrects that typo, and makes my G5 happy. Tested on G5.

You can probably blame me for originally writing the 2 versions with inversed usage of r10 and r11, thus confusing Tony :-)" Ben duly blamed. - Linus ] Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
