Subject[RFC v2c 1/8] vfs: Add vfs_time abstractions
Date
Add vfs_time accessors to help convert vfs timestamps to use
64 bit times. These create an abstraction layer so that
vfs inode times can be switched to struct timespec64 from
struct timespec without breaking the individual filesystems
after they have incorporated these.

Add vfs_time data type aliases to help convert vfs timestamps
to use 64 bit times. These create an abstraction layer so that
vfs inode times can be switched to struct timespec64 instead
of struct timespec.

Use uapi exposed data types, timespec and timespec64 here to keep
minimal timestamp data type conversions in API's interfacing with
vfs.
