  ALSA: bump uapi version numbers (2019-12-13 11:25:58 +0100)

ALSA: Fix year 2038 issue for sound subsystem

This is a series I worked on with Baolin in 2017 and 2018, but we
never quite managed to finish up the last pieces. During the
ALSA developer meetup at ELC-E 2018 in Edinburgh, a decision was
made to go with this approach for keeping best compatibility
with existing source code, and then I failed to follow up by
resending the patches.

Now I have patches for all remaining time_t uses in the kernel,
so it's absolutely time to revisit them. I have done more
review of the patches myself and found a couple of minor issues
that I have fixed up, otherwise the series is still the same as

Conceptually, the idea of these patches is:

- 64-bit applications should see no changes at all, neither
  compile-time nor run-time.

- 32-bit code compiled with a 64-bit time_t currently
  does not work with ALSA, and requires kernel changes and/or
  sound/asound.h changes

- Most 32-bit code using these interfaces will work correctly
  on a modified kernel, with or without the uapi header changes.

- 32-bit code using SNDRV_TIMER_IOCTL_TREAD requires the
  updated header file for 64-bit time_t support

- 32-bit i386 user space with 64-bit time_t is broken for
  SNDRV_PCM_IOCTL_SYNC_PTR because of i386 alignment. This is also
  addressed by the updated uapi header.

- PCM mmap is currently supported on native x86 kernels
  (both 32-bit and 64-bit) but not for compat mode. This series breaks
  the 32-bit native mmap support for 32-bit time_t, but instead allows
  it for 64-bit time_t on both native and compat kernels. This seems to
  be the best trade-off, as mmap support is optional already, and most
  32-bit code runs in compat mode anyway.

- I've tried to avoid breaking compilation of 32-bit code
  as much as possible. Anything that does break however is likely code
  that is already broken on 64-bit time_t and needs source changes to
  fix them.
