specific code as it can get messy if not handled properly with 2 compat time_t versions.
So have one helper that deals with all copyout and have it used by all of them. IMO all that code should treat userland representation as completely opaque. Just switch nanosleep_copyout() to take timespec64 instead of timespec (for kernel-side object) and that'll do it, wouldn't it?
Do you guys see any benefit in doing it the way patch 4/8 in the current series does?
Well, if you want to keep more restart functions and more boilerplate on compat side...
