That does sound like it is related to my patches indeed. If you are not
yet done bisecting, please checkout commit e27c49291a7f ("x86: Convert
x86_platform_ops to timespec64") before you try anything else, that
one is the top of the branch with my changes. If that fails, the bisection
will be much quicker. Unfortunately I don't see anything right away,
and haven't come across that bug in my own testing using Debian Stretch
in an x86-32 qemu.
