Progress has been slow for a while, but there are still a number of interested
parties, so it is continuing. I don't think it's important to wait
here, as 64-bit
time_t will be available for all architectures in glibc once the kernel support
is done, the question is more about rebuilding all 32-bit binaries in a distro
after the change.
