My understanding was that we always enable CONFIG_64BIT_TIME
when 64BIT is enabled.

For a 64-bit architecture, we must not clear the upper 32 bits of tv_nsec,
but instead need later check them for being nonzero. I think the
correct condition would be

if ((IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_64BIT_TIME) && !IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_64BIT)) ||
in_compat_syscall())

Two more thoughts:

- The temporary variable here is defined as 'struct timespec', this must be
changed to __kernel_timespec for the function to work correctly once we
switch a 32-bit architecture over. Doing it in this patch is probably the best
time for that change.

- I had an idea to handle the copying of timespec/timeval with a
one-size-fits-all
function and multiple wrappers around it, such as

enum user_ts_type {
USER_TS_TIMEVAL = 1,
USER_TS_32 = 2,
USER_TS_CLEARNSEC = 4,
USER_TS_NOCHECK = 8,
};

/* native handlers want to check on 64-bit but zero on 32-bit */
#define USER_TS_NATIVE (IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_64BIT) ? 0 : USER_TS_CLEARNSEC)

/* compat handlers accessing 64-bit time structs always want to clear
the upper half */
#define USER_TS_COMPAT64 USER_TS_CLEARNSEC

/* on x32, we always use 64-bit time_t but want to clear the upper half */
#define USER_TS_COMPAT32 (COMPAT_USE_64BIT_TIME) ? USER_TS_CLEARNSEC :
USER_TS_32)

int get_timestruct(struct timespec64 *ts, const void __user *uts,
enum user_ts_type flags)
{
int ret;

if (flags & USER_TS_32) {
struct compat_timespec ts32;
ret = copy_from_user(&ts32, uts, sizeof(ts32));
if (ret)
return -EFAULT;
ts->tv_sec = ts32.tv_sec;
ts->tv_nsec = ts32.tv_nsec;
} else {
ret = copy_from_user(&ts, uts, sizeof(*ts));
if (ret)
return -EFAULT;
if (flags & USER_TS_CLEARNSEC)
ts->tv_nsec &= 0xFFFFFFFFUL;
}

if (flags & USER_TS_TIMEVAL) {
if (!(flags & USER_TS_NOCHECK) &&
ts->tv_nsec >= USEC_PER_SEC)
return -EINVAL;

ts->tv_nsec *= NSEC_PER_USEC;
} else {
if (!(flags & USER_TS_NOCHECK) &&
ts->tv_nsec >= NSEC_PER_SEC)
return -EINVAL;
}

return 0;
}

int get_timespec64(struct timespec64 *ts, const struct compat_timespec
__user *uts)
{
return get_timestruct(ts. uts, USER_TS_NATIVE);
}

int get_compat_timespec32(struct timespec64 *ts, const struct
compat_timespec __user *uts)
{
return get_timestruct(ts. uts, USER_TS_COMPAT32);
}

int get_compat_timespec64(struct timespec64 *ts, const struct
__kernel_timespec __user *uts)
{
return get_timestruct(ts. uts, USER_TS_COMPAT64);
}

While working on the driver patches I encountered lots of different
combinations of
those that might be interesting here, so we could have wrappers for
the most common
ones and call get_timestruct() and put_timestruct() directly for the less common
variations. Am I taking it too far here, or would that make sense?
