    Use 64-bit timekeeping · 1032a668

    This patch changes the use of struct timespec in
    dccp_probe to use struct timespec64 instead. timespec uses a 32-bit
    seconds field which will overflow in the year 2038 and beyond. timespec64
    uses a 64-bit seconds field. Note that the correctness of the code isn't
    changed, since the original code only uses the timestamps to compute a
    small elapsed interval. This patch is part of a larger attempt to remove
    instances of 32-bit timekeeping structures (timespec, timeval, time_t)
    from the kernel so it is easier to identify where the real 2038 issues
