_gettimeofday is not implemented

I have a syscalls.c file with a _gettimeofday() function, and I expected this to be used instead of the one in libnosys, but it does not. I get a warning from the linker:

warning: _gettimeofday is not implemented and will always fail

If I remove "-llibnosys" I get an undefined symbol error:

undefined reference to `gettimeofday'

My syscalls.c file has read() and write(), and I get those instead of the libnosys versions. Why not _gettimeofday()?
