About <sys/select.h> and <sys/time.h>, without gnulib

independent of gnulib, I don't believe this include order should break:

   $ cat sys-time-h.c
   #include <sys/select.h>
   #include <sys/time.h>

   $ gcc -c sys-time-h.c
   In file included from /usr/include/time.h:12:0,
                    from /usr/include/sys/time.h:268,
                    from sys-time-h.c:2:
   /usr/include/sys/reent.h:276:3: error: expected specifier-qualifier-list before ‘_fpos64_t’
      _fpos64_t _EXFNPTR(_seek64, (struct _reent *, _PTR, _fpos64_t, int));

This is with 64-bit cygwin-2.5.1 and gcc-5.3.0.

It does help to reverse their order, or include <sys/types.h> before,
but I've failed to find something like that to be required by the specs...
