Subject[RFC v2a 01/12] vfs: Add vfs_time abstractions
Date
Add vfs_time 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 use 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.
