Merge branch 'x86-vdso-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip

Pull x86 vdso fixes from Peter Anvin:
 "Fixes for x86/vdso.

  One is a simple build fix for bigendian hosts, one is to make "make
  vdso_install" work again, and the rest is about working around a bug
  in Google's Go language -- two are documentation patches that improves
  the sample code that the Go coders took, modified, and broke; the
  other two implements a workaround that keeps existing Go binaries from
  segfaulting at least"

* 'x86-vdso-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip:
  x86/vdso: Fix vdso_install
  x86/vdso: Hack to keep 64-bit Go programs working
  x86/vdso: Add PUT_LE to store little-endian values
  x86/vdso/doc: Make vDSO examples more portable
  x86/vdso/doc: Rename vdso_test.c to vdso_standalone_test_x86.c
  x86, vdso: Remove one final use of htole16()
