This is a series I worked on with Baolin in 2017 and 2018, but we
never quite managed to finish up the last pieces. During the
ALSA developer meetup at ELC-E 2018 in Edinburgh, a decision was
made to go with this approach for keeping best compatibility
with existing source code, and then I failed to follow up by
resending the patches.
Now I have patches for all remaining time_t uses in the kernel,
so it's absolutely time to revisit them. I have done more
review of the patches myself and found a couple of minor issues
that I have fixed up, otherwise the series is still the same as
Conceptually, the idea of these patches is:
- 64-bit applications should see no changes at all, neither
compile-time nor run-time.
- 32-bit code compiled with a 64-bit time_t currently
does not work with ALSA, and requires kernel changes and/or
- Most 32-bit code using these interfaces will work correctly
on a modified kernel, with or without the uapi header changes.
- 32-bit code using SNDRV_TIMER_IOCTL_TREAD requires the
updated header file for 64-bit time_t support
- 32-bit i386 user space with 64-bit time_t is broken for
SNDRV_PCM_IOCTL_STATUS, SNDRV_RAWMIDI_IOCTL_STATUS and
SNDRV_PCM_IOCTL_SYNC_PTR because of i386 alignment. This is also
addressed by the updated uapi header.
- PCM mmap is currently supported on native x86 kernels
(both 32-bit and 64-bit) but not for compat mode. This series breaks
the 32-bit native mmap support for 32-bit time_t, but instead allows
it for 64-bit time_t on both native and compat kernels. This seems to
be the best trade-off, as mmap support is optional already, and most
32-bit code runs in compat mode anyway.
- I've tried to avoid breaking compilation of 32-bit code
as much as possible. Anything that does break however is likely code
that is already broken on 64-bit time_t and needs source changes to
I hope I addressed all review comments by now, so please pull this

ALSA: Avoid using timespec for struct snd_timer_status
ALSA: Avoid using timespec for struct snd_ctl_elem_value
ALSA: Avoid using timespec for struct snd_pcm_status
ALSA: Avoid using timespec for struct snd_rawmidi_status
ALSA: Avoid using timespec for struct snd_timer_tread

Many organizations fail to respond to external and internal
environment which in turn affect the well-being of the organization
and may cause total shutdown and loss of business such as Nokia case.
Other organizations are considering the Marketing Mix along with the
change best practices to insure continued prosperity and revenues.The
study will also conclude the best leadership style that should be
associated with a change. This research is done to investigates the
best practices of organizational change and the best leadership theory
that could be used to implement change. It aims at helping
organizations in implementing a successful change, as well as the
marketing and leadership strategies of change adopted to insure
successful implantation of the change. This study seeks to identify
the most recurrent factors that drives organizational change, and to
illustrate methodologies for an effective change.
