Subject[PATCH 1/2] ipc: fix semtimedop for generic 32-bit architectures
As Vincent noticed, the y2038 conversion of semtimedop in linux-5.1
broke when commit 00bf25d693e7 ("y2038: use time32 syscall names on
32-bit") changed all system calls on all architectures that take
a 32-bit time_t to point to the _time32 implementation, but left out
semtimedop in the asm-generic header.

This affects all 32-bit architectures using asm-generic/unistd.h:
h8300, unicore32, openrisc, nios2, hexagon, c6x, arc, nds32 and csky.

The notable exception is riscv32, which has dropped support for the
time32 system calls entirely.

Hi Vincent,

Sorry for the delay since your report. Does this address your

Anyone else, please note that this patch is required since
5.1 to make sysvipc work on the listed architectures.
