I fixed that bug months ago:
user: Rob Landley <rob at landley.net>
date: Thu Jun 16 07:41:10 2011 -0500
Fix from Geoffroy Weisenhorn: on 32-bit hosts mktimeconst needs
1L<<31 to be an _unsigned_ long constant.
But I made it unsigned instead of long long because 64 bit math on a 32
bit host is unpleasant.
Who else is using it? (Just curious. I wrote that patch from scratch,
and despite repeatedly posting it to linux-kernel nobody ever seemed to
care but me...)
