That was a copy/paste error and was responsible for a few libc-testsuite
   ld.lld: error: undefined symbol: __dlsym_time64
I will correct that and update the source.

This is the list, the context associated with some of the failures can be
bulky so I hope the summary is ok.  Let me know which failures are most
critical and I will try to fix those first.  51 failures after removing the
TIME64 define
