[release-branch.go1.7] runtime: fix nanotime for macOS Sierra

In the beta version of the macOS Sierra (10.12) release, the
gettimeofday system call changed on x86. Previously it always returned
the time in the AX/DX registers. Now, if AX is returned as 0, it means
that the system call has stored the values into the memory pointed to by
the first argument, just as the libc gettimeofday function does. The
libc function handles both cases, and we need to do so as well.

Fixes #16272.

Our canonical Git repository is located at https://go.googlesource.com/go. There is a mirror of the repository at https://github.com/golang/go.

Go is the work of hundreds of contributors. We appreciate your help!

To contribute, please read the contribution guidelines: https://golang.org/doc/contribute.html

Note that we do not accept pull requests and that we use the issue tracker for bug reports and proposals only. Please ask questions on https://forum.golangbridge.org or https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/golang-nuts.

Binary Distribution Notes

If you have just untarred a binary Go distribution, you need to set the environment variable $GOROOT to the full path of the go directory (the one containing this file). You can omit the variable if you unpack it into /usr/local/go, or if you rebuild from sources by running all.bash (see doc/install-source.html). You should also add the Go binary directory $GOROOT/bin to your shell's path.

For example, if you extracted the tar file into $HOME/go, you might put the following in your .profile:

export GOROOT=$HOME/go
export PATH=$PATH:$GOROOT/bin

See https://golang.org/doc/install or doc/install.html for more details.
