i haven't seen the updated ilp32 patches on top of
the time64 work: the glibc side only uses time32 on
ilp32 currently, but adding a new 32bit port now to
glibc requires 64bit time_t which means some things
would have to be done differently.

the glibc changes would likely not be compatible
with whatever the current ilp32 users do and on
the kernel side it would be better to only expose
time64 like on rv32, which is a syscall abi change.
