Right, that would work. I tried to keep the patch small here, changing
it to __kernel_old_timeval would require make it all more complicated
since it would still need to check some conditional to tell the difference
between sparc32 and sparc64.

I think this patch (relative to the version I posted) would work the same:

Do you like that better? One difference here is the handling of
LPSETTIMEOUT_NEW on sparc64, which would continue to use
the 64/64 layout rather than the 64/32/pad layout, but that should
be ok, since sparc64 user space using ppdev (if any exists)
would use LPSETTIMEOUT_OLD, not LPSETTIMEOUT_NEW.

I think you got this wrong: sparc64 like most architectures naturally
aligns 64-bit members, so 'struct timeval' still uses 16 bytes including
the four padding bytes at the end, it just has the nanoseconds in
a different position from all other big-endian architectures.
