Add vfs_time accessors to help convert vfs timestamps to use
64 bit times. These create an abstraction layer so that
vfs inode times can be switched to use struct timespec64 from
struct timespec without breaking the individual filesystems
after they have incorporated these.

Use uapi exposed data types, timespec and timespec64 here to keep
minimal timestamp data type conversions in API's interfacing with
vfs.
