[PATCH] perf bench: Add support for 32-bit systems with 64-bit time_t

From: Alistair Francis
Date: Thu Sep 09 2021 - 00:26:09 EST

From: Alistair Francis <alistair.francis@xxxxxxx>

Some 32-bit architectures (such are 32-bit RISC-V) only have a 64-bit
time_t and as such don't have the SYS_futex syscall. This patch will
allow us to use the SYS_futex_time64 syscall on those platforms.

This patch does not attempt to gracefully allow 32-bit architectures
with both SYS_futex and SYS_futex_time64 to support a 64-bit time_t.
This patch only applies to 32-bit architectures with a 64-bit time_t.
