Depending on how gnulib syncs on glibc, I /might/ request that at least
the very first patch from the Y2038 series (the one which defines
__time64_t) be pulled in the upcoming glibc release so that I can move
forward with Paul Eggert's request that at least part of the Y2038
glibc patches go through gnulib first.

This patch would have zero impact on existing code as it just adds a
publicly visible type, and therefore presents zero risk of breaking
existing user source or object code.

I'll follow up on this reply as soon as I know whether I do need
to request the patch pull in or not.
