[PATCH v2 07/11] Consolidate and deprecate ftime


From: Zack Weinberg <zackw@panix.com>

Consolidate and deprecate ftime

Changes from previous version:

  - Do not remove sys/timeb.h, instead mark ftime as deprecated.  The
    idea is still to remove it eventually on a future release.

--

ftime is an obsolete variation on gettimeofday, offering only
millisecond time resolution; it was probably a system call in ooold
versions of BSD Unix.  For historic reasons, we had three
implementations of it.  These are all consolidated into time/ftime.c,
and then the function is deprecated.

For some reason, the implementation of ftime in terms of gettimeofday
was rounding rather than truncating microseconds to milliseconds.  In
all the other places where we use a higher-resolution time function to
implement a lower-resolution one, we truncate.  ftime is changed to
match, just for tidiness' sake.

Like gettimeofday, ftime tries to report the time zone, and using that
information is always a bug.  This patch dummies out the reported
timezone information; the timezone and dstflag fields of the
returned "struct timeb" will always be zero.

Checked on x86_64-linux-gnu, i686-linux-gnu, powerpc64le-linux-gnu,
powerpc64-linux-gnu, and powerpc-linux-gnu.
