I tried adding the helper now but ran into a stupid problem: the best place to put it would be linux/time32.h, but then I have to include linux/compat.h from there, which in turn pulls in tons of other headers in any file using linux/time.h.
I considered making it a macro instead, but that's also really ugly.
I now think we should just defer this change until after v5.6, once I have separated linux/time.h from linux/time32.h. In the meantime I'll resend the other two patches that I know we need in v5.6 in order to get there, so Darrick can apply them to his tree.
