x86: KVM vdso and clock improvements

NB: patch 1 doesn't really belong here, but it makes this a lot
easier for me to test.  Patch 1, if it's okay at all, should go
though the kvm tree.  The rest should probably go through
tip:x86/vdso once they're reviewed.

I'll do a followup to enable vdso pvclock on 32-bit guests.
I'm not currently set up to test it.  (The KVM people could also
do it very easily on top of these patches.)

Changes from v1:
 - Dropped patch 1
 - Added Paolo's review and acks
 - Fixed a build issue on some configs

Andy Lutomirski (4):
  x86, vdso, pvclock: Simplify and speed up the vdso pvclock reader
  x86/vdso: Get pvclock data from the vvar VMA instead of the fixmap
  x86/vdso: Remove pvclock fixmap machinery
  x86/vdso: Enable vdso pvclock access on all vdso variants
