[PATCH v2 16/17] y2038: Make compat_sys_rt_sigtimedwait usable on 32-bit

Once sys_rt_sigtimedwait() gets changed to a 64-bit time_t, we have
to provide compatibility support for existing binaries.  Using the
compat_sys_rt_sigtimedwait() entry point is convenient because it allows
to share the implementation with 64-bit architectures.

Unfortunately, the get_compat_sigset() and copy_siginfo_to_user32()
functions are used in that function, but we can replace them with
trivial helpers that do the same thing as before.
