kdb is the only user of the __current_kernel_time() interface, which is not y2038 safe and should be removed at some point.
The kdb code also goes to great lengths to print the time in a human-readable format from 'struct timespec', again using a non-y2038-safe re-implementation of the generic time_to_tm() code.
Is it really necessary for the kdb `summary' command to print the time/date? Which puppies would die if we just removed it all?
