This patch provides new __clock_settime64 explicit 64 bit function for
setting the time. Moreover, a 32 bit version - __clock_settime has been
refactored to internally use __clock_settime64.

The __clock_settime is now supposed to be used on systems still supporting
32 bit time - hence the necessary checks and conversion to 64 bit type.
After this change it is intrinsically Y2038 safe.

The new 64 bit syscall (clock_settime64) available from Linux
5.1+ has been used when applicable on 32 bit systems.

The __ASSUME_TIME64_SYSCALLS flag indicates if the Linux kernel provides
64 bit version of clock_settime (i.e. clock_settime64). If this syscall is
not provided by the kernel - the 32 bit version of it is executed instead.

When working on 32 bit systems without Y2038 time support the clock_settime
returns error when one wants to set time with wrong (overflowed) tv_sec
value. Moreover, the correctness of tv_nsec is checked.

In this patch the internal padding (tv_pad) of struct __timespec64 is
left untouched (on 32 bit systems) as Linux kernel ignores upper 32 bits
of tv_nsec.

The execution path on 64 bit systems has not been changed or affected in
any way.

- The code has been tested with x86_64/x86 (native compilation):
make PARALLELMFLAGS="-j8" && make xcheck PARALLELMFLAGS="-j8"

- Run specific tests on ARM/x86 32bit systems (qemu):
and run tests:
on kernels with and without 64 bit time support.

No regressions were observed.

* include/time.h (__clock_settime64):
  Add __clock_settime alias according to __TIMESIZE define
* sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/clock_settime.c (__clock_settime):
  Refactor this function to be used only on 32 bit machines as a wrapper
  on __clock_settime64.
* sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/clock_settime.c (__clock_settime64): Add
* sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/clock_settime.c (__clock_settime64):
  Use clock_settime64 kernel syscall (available from 5.1-rc1+ Linux) by
  32 bit Y2038 safe systems

Changes for v3:
- Refactor in-code comment (add information regarding Linux kernel ignorance
  of padding
- Do not use __TIMESIZE to select main execution path (for Y2038 systems
  __TIMESIZE would be changed from 32 to 64 bits at some point to indicate
  full Y2038 support

Changes for v2:
- Add support for __ASSUME_64BIT_TIME flag when Linux kernel provides syscalls
  supporting 64 bit time on 32 bit systems
- Provide fallback to 32 bit version of clock_settime when clock_settime64
  is not available
- Do not copy *tp to timespec - this seems like an overkill as in clock_settime()
  the 32 bit struct timespec is copied to internal 64 bit struct __timespec64
