Looks good to me.

The st_mtim member of stat64 is only available in XOPEN2K8 mode, which is
fine for the test cases.

PS: I was reading about these types in the manual, but there's no mention
to st_mtim, only to st_mtime, which is provided when *not* in XOPEN2K8.
Does this deserve mention in the manual?  (not a problem for this patch).
