y2038: syscall implementation cleanups

This is a series of cleanups for the y2038 work, mostly intended
for namespace cleaning: the kernel defines the traditional
time_t, timeval and timespec types that often lead to y2038-unsafe
code. Even though the unsafe usage is mostly gone from the kernel,
having the types and associated functions around means that we
can still grow new users, and that we may be missing conversions
to safe types that actually matter.

There are still a number of driver specific patches needed to
get the last users of these types removed, those have been
submitted to the respective maintainers.

y2038: alarm: fix half-second cut-off

Changing alarm_itimer accidentally broke the logic for arithmetic
rounding of half seconds in the return code.

Change it to a constant based on NSEC_PER_SEC, as suggested by
Ben Hutchings.
