I think it's on me to resend what I have. That patch is one of the few
remaining ones in my backlog for y2038 after having sent out
some 50 other patches (some new, some old).

It has been in my testing tree since October though and not shown
any regressions for a while (I had to do one modification after
Jailhouse got merged), so I'll just send it out now.
