All 32-bit architectures use old_timeval32 timestamps in the kernel
here, even rv32 and x32. As a rule, we keep the types bug-for-bug
compatible between architectures and fix them all at the same time.

Changing hcidump to SO_TIMESTAMPNS would work as well, but
that is a much bigger change and I don't know how to test that.
