The following patch adds a function to return tv_sec portion of
ktime_get_real_ts64() function in order to have a function that returns
seconds as 64-bit integers instead of 32-bit integers to address the
y2038 problem.

The function is similar to get_seconds() function except that it
includes read_seqcount_retry loop which is required for 32-bit
architectures. This is because 32-bit machines cannot access 64-bit
tk->xtime_sec variable atomically, requiring two 32-bit register loads.
