[Xen-devel] vgettimeofday disabled?

     Based on a comment from a customer, I looked briefly at the vgettimeofday
implementation in Xen.  I noticed that vgettimeofday is disabled in the 64-bit
linux-2.6.18-xen.hg tree, basically by setting sysctl_vsyscall = 0 in
vsyscall_init().  Is there some known problem with enabling this?  In a quick
test, I turned it on, and went from 2m14s in my micro benchmark to 30s for the
benchmark, but I'm not sure if there will be any ill effects from the same.
