Actually I'd like to record timestamp with standard time structure, so I
used 'struct timeval' in the past patch. However it's deprecated, so I
am looking for the alternatives.

Additionally, I have already looked some patches that replacing timeval
with timespec64. I'll do the same way in next version patch.

Many thanks,
