If vdso is disabled, the goruntime calls gettimeofday from vsyscall,
but if vsyscall is disabled too, all golang binaries crash:

SIGSEGV {si_signo=SIGSEGV, si_code=SEGV_MAPERR, si_addr=0xffffffffff600000} ---
killed by SIGSEGV (core dumped) ++

vsyscall doesn't work as it was designed for a long time due to security
reasons and now vsyscall is a little more expensive than real syscalls:

This patch reworks the code to call syscalls if the vdso library isn't
