the ARM architecture has a number of out-of-tree real-time clock modules which need to be able to call do_settimeofday(). So Adrian withdrew the patch, and the symbol remains exported.
That's new. I thought the prevailing sentiment among kernel developers was that there's no reason to have an interface if no in-tree module uses it today.
