Could you just merge my three patches into your tree then once
you are happy with all the changes?

I don't think clamping would be good here, that just replaces
one bug with another at the overflow time. If you would like to
have something better before this gets extended, I could try to
come up with a version that converts it to the nearest 64-bit
timestamp, similar to the way that time_before32() in the kernel
or the NTP protocol work.

If you think it can get extended properly soon, I'd just leave the
patch as it is today in order to remove the get_seconds()
interface for v5.6.
