I meant include/uapi/linux/socket.h.

But you're right that that is not referenced from sys/socket.h.

I do see a reference to it in my bits/socket.h

/* Socket level message types. This must match the definitions in
<linux/socket.h>. */

so perhaps the logic could be both there and in libc bits/socket.h.

Does that matter, as long as they are defined? This basic block is the
same between all archs:

-#define SO_TIMESTAMP SO_TIMESTAMP_OLD
-#define SO_TIMESTAMPNS SO_TIMESTAMPNS_OLD
+#if __BITS_PER_LONG == 64
+#define SO_TIMESTAMP SO_TIMESTAMP_OLD
+#define SO_TIMESTAMPNS SO_TIMESTAMPNS_OLD
+#else
+#define SO_TIMESTAMP (sizeof(time_t) == sizeof(__kernel_long_t) ?
SO_TIMESTAMP_OLD : SO_TIMESTAMP_NEW)
+#define SO_TIMESTAMPNS (sizeof(time_t) == sizeof(__kernel_long_t)
? SO_TIMESTAMPNS_OLD : SO_TIMESTAMPNS_NEW)
+#endif

It might be too complex to coordinate changes between kernel and libc
headers, in which case you're right that this just has to live in
(each arch's) asm/socket.h directly.
