A week is more than enough, especially for patches that only touch
internals like this one.

Regarding the actual patch, I don't understand why tv_pad isn't an
*anonymous* bit field.  This seems to introduce unnecessary variance
between architectures and is incompatible with how glibc itself uses
struct timespec.  It's also inconsistent with the new comment in
include/time.h (named padding is only needed if you need to
zero-initialize the padding).
