Right, this patch originally came after my version of the 40-bit
timestamps that I dropped from the series now.

I've added "... once the extended times are supported." above now.

What is the timeline for that work now? I'm mainly interested in
getting the removal of 'time_t/timeval/timespec' and 'get_seconds()'
from the kernel done for v5.6, but it would be good to also have
this patch and the extended timestamps in the same version
just so we can claim that "all known y2038 issues" are addressed
in that release (I'm sure we will run into bugs we don't know yet).

The check is there to not forbid XFS_IOC_FSINUMBERS at
the moment, since that is not affected.

Right, fixed now.
