Generally speaking, I think we want the new time handling
to be written as the default case rather than have it hidden away
in a separate function. If we didn't have the sparc64 quirk with its
unusual timeval definition, we'd only need a special flag for the
old 32-bit format, but that doesn't work as long we have to support
two different 64-bit formats for 64-bit timeval on sparc64
(32 or 64 bit microseconds).

I think that would break compat handling: when we have a 32-bit
user space process, the difference between old and new timestamps
is meaningful even on 64-bit kernels, but the distinction is only made all
the way down in put_cmsg_compat().
