The y2038 issue for ppdev is changes of timeval in the ioctl (PPSETTIME and PPGETTIME). The size of struct timeval changes from 8bytes to 16bytes due to the changes of time_t. It lead to the changes of the command of ioctl, e.g. for PPGETTIME, We have:
on 32-bit (old): 0x80087095 on 32-bit (new): 0x80107095 on 64-bit : 0x80107095
This patch define these two ioctl commands to support the 32bit and 64bit time_t application at the same time. And, introduce pp_set_timeout to remove some duplicated code.

Looks all good now, please send it to the appropriate lists and maintainer(s). Greg should be able to pick up the two patches with my Ack.
