Since it's not proper to use timeval & __kernel_old_timeval.
The remaining structure with tv_usec that I found is
__kernel_timex_timeval, but I'm not sure if this is proper one or not.
All I can see is in
https://lwn.net/ml/linux-kernel/20180705213604.18883-6-deepa.kernel@gmail.com/

I'm afraid of using wrong structure again.
Could you give me some advices about this?

Or is there another suitable way to replace timeval

Many thanks,
Frankie
