I'm in the process of finishing up the last bits on y2038-unsafe code in the kernel, this series is for v4l2, which has no problem with overflow, but has multiple ioctls that break with user space built against a new 32-bit libc.
Thank you for working on this. Much appreciated!
I've reviewed this v4 series and found a few issues (mostly things that ended up in videodev2.h that shouldn't be there).
Once a v5 is posted I'll try to test this more.
Is there an easy(-ish) way to test this with a time64 ABI? Do you have such an environment set up for testing?
I posted similar patches as part of a series back in 2015, the new version was rewritten from scratch and I double-checked with the old version to make sure I did not miss anything I had already taken care of before.
Hans Verkuil worked on a different patch set in 2017, but this also did not get to the point of being merged.
My new version contains compat-ioctl support, which the old one did not and should be complete, but given its size likely contains bugs. I did randconfig build tests, but no runtime test, so careful review as well as testing would be much appreciated.
With this version, the newly added code takes care of the existing ABI, while the existing code got moved to the 64-bit time_t interface and is used internally. This means that testing with existing binaries should exercise most of the modifications and if that works and doesn't get shot down in review, we can probably live without testing the new ABI explicitly.
I'm not entirely happy with the compat-ioctl implementation that adds quite a bit of code duplication, but I hope this is acceptable anyway, as a better implementation would likely require a larger refactoring of the compat-ioctl file, while my approach simply adds support for the additional data structure variants.
A cleanup is indeed much more work. This y2038 code is awful, but that's really because the original structs are aligned in the worst possible way.
This is a minor update compared to version 3 of this series, with bugfixes for small mistakes that I found or that were reported by automated build bots. I updated the tree at  to this version now.
