Subject[PATCH 0/5] y2038: further system call conversion
This is another set of system call changes that were intended to get
merged much earlier. I've rebased the patches on top of the latest kernel
and Deepa's poll/select/io_pgetevents series now, and applied it to the
same y2038 branch for inclusion in 4.21.

This is just a continuation of the earlier system call changes, so I
expect no surprises here, unless I made a mistake in the rebase.

After this series, the only remaining system calls that need to be
modified are:

- setsockopt/getsockopt, they do not need a new entry in the system
call table, only new numbers assigned for their socket options.
Deepa is finalizing her series to passing 64-bit timestamps in cmsg
correctly for SO_TIMESTAMP{,NS,ING}.
Further, we need a new SO_RCVTIMEO/SO_SNDTIMEO implementation
here, which has not been implemented yet.

- waitid/getrusage, this needs a rewrite now from earlier versions
based on recent feedback. The plan now is to incorporate nanosecond
timestamps in a new revision of the 'rusage' structure. Possibly also
include BSD wait6() semantics of passing back the child resource
usage in waitid(), and/or a method to pass a signal mask as in
io_pgetevents(). waitid/getrusage() are not required for correct
behavior with 64-bit time_t and can be safely emulated on top of
the existing syscalls by the C library beyond 2038. This needs more

- clock_adjtime, this is also optional and can be implemented
by the C library if necessary. The plan is to do the same as x32
and use the 64-bit structure natively on both 32-bit and 64-bit
architectures. The timex structure contains a 'timeval' at the
moment, but also supports nanoseconds passed in it.

- getitimer/setitimer, these again can be trivially emulated
by the C library.
