Unfortunately, I think this can't work: the kernel has no idea whether user space uses a 32-bit or 64-bit time_t, and we need to be able to support both kinds of user space at the same time.
What we have to do instead is change the definition of LPSETTIMEOUT, like
#if __BITS_PER_SIZE_T >= __BITS_PER_LONG #define LPSETTIMEOUT 0x060f /* set parport timeout */ #else #define LPSETTIMEOUT _IOW(0x06, 0x0f, struct timeval) #endif
We need to decide what the correct #if condition should be, but the idea is that all current user space remains unchanged, while user space built with a 64-bit time_t sees the modified definition of LPSETTIMEOUT and passes that into the kernel when using the larger structure.

tv_usec does not need to be 64-bit here, it has to be below 1 million.
- long to_jiffies;
- if ((tv_sec < 0) || (tv_usec < 0))
- to_jiffies = usecs_to_jiffies(tv_usec);
- to_jiffies += tv_sec * (long)HZ;
- if (to_jiffies <= 0)
- lp_table[minor].timeout = to_jiffies;
- return 0;
I think tv_sec can also be shorter, as we ignore the upper bits after the multiplication with HZ.
