sys_call_table[__NR_gettimeofday - 1024] would have to be set to the
entry-point of new_time_stub.  If you declare new_time_stub as a
function, you'd have to do this like so:

	extern void new_time_stub (whatever...);
	struct fptr { void *ip, void *gp };

	sys_call_table[__NR_gettimeofday - 1024] =
		((struct fptr *) &new_time_stub)->ip;
