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 (__TIMESIZE != 64) - hence the necessary conversion to 64 bit
struct timespec.

The new clock_settime64 syscall available from Linux 5.1+ has been used,
when applicable.

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

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

- The glibc has been build tested (make PARALLELMFLAGS="-j8") for
x86 (i386), x86_64-x32, and armv7

Run-time tests:
- Run specific tests on ARM/x86 32bit systems (qemu):
  https://github.com/lmajewski/meta-y2038 and run tests:

- Use of cross-test-ssh.sh for ARM (armv7):
  make PARALLELMFLAGS="-j8" test-wrapper='./cross-test-ssh.sh root@' xcheck

Linux kernel, headers and minimal kernel version for glibc build test
- Linux v5.1 (with clock_settime64) and glibc build with v5.1 as minimal
  kernel version (--enable-kernel="5.1.0")
  The __ASSUME_TIME64_SYSCALLS flag defined.

- Linux v5.1 and default minimal kernel version
  The __ASSUME_TIME64_SYSCALLS not defined, but kernel supports
  __clock_settime64 syscalls.

- Linux v4.19 (no clock_settime64 support) with default minimal kernel
  version for contemporary glibc

  This kernel doesn't support __clock_settime64 syscalls, so the fallback
  to clock_settime is tested.

The above tests were performed with Y2038 redirection applied as well as
without (so the __TIMESIZE != 64 execution path is checked as well).

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+ Linux)

Changes for v9:
- Add information regarding test scenarios
- Adjust the code to use struct __timespec64 helper functions

Changes for v8:
- None

Changes for v7:
- Revert changes to __clock_settime - as a result it now behaves as in v5
  (It is a wrapper on __clock_settime64).
- Fix the code to apply on newest master (after moving clock_settime to
  libc from librt).

Changes for v6:
- In the __clock_settime function do not call __clock_settime64 - just use
  the clock_settime 32 bit ABI syscall. Such approach will facilitate
  updating systems with __WORDSIZE==32 to be Y2038 safe by disabling for
  example clock_settime 32 bit syscall in the Linux kernel.

Changes for v5:
- Use __ASSUME_TIME64_SYSCALLS to indicate Linux kernel support for 64 bit
- Move the in_time_t_range() check to __clock_settime64
- Alias __NR_clock_settime64 to __NR_clock_settime if the former is not
  defined in the headers.

Changes for v4:
- __ASSUME_TIME64_SYSCALLS for fall back path
- Use __SYSCALL_WORDSIZE to exclude 'x32' from execution path (so it will
  use x86_64 syscall
- Rewrite the commit message

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
