That happens in bits/timesize.h.
Once bits/timesize.h exists, the value from there can be used in
bits/time64.h, so only one bits/time64.h should be needed.
This patch could be split in two. The first would add bits/timesize.h
(two variants), and maybe also use __TIMESIZE in bits/msq-pad.h and remove
the x86-specific version of that header. The second would add
bits/time64.h (one variant).
