[PATCH] ceph: fix message length computation

From: Arnd Bergmann
Date: Wed Sep 30 2015 - 09:05:27 EST

create_request_message() computes the maximum length of a message,
but uses the wrong type for the time stamp: sizeof(struct timespec)
may be 8 or 16 depending on the architecture, while sizeof(struct
ceph_timespec) is always 8, and that is what gets put into the

Found while auditing the uses of timespec for y2038 problems.
