Well spotted, this is indeed a very recent change I did to the patch. The idea here is to hide any use of 'time_t', 'timespec' and 'timeval' from kernel compilation. These types are now defined in an incompatible way by libc, so we have to remove them from the kernel's uapi headers. I would prefer to remove them completely from the kernel (rather than moving them from uapi to internal headers) to make it harder to write y2038-incompatible code, and with the 90 patches I sent this week, all users are gone from the kernel (this series was the last part).
Could you put this trick in the changelog, too?
