Using "unsigned long" for UNIX timestamps is never a good idea, and
comparing the value of such a variable against U32_MAX does not do
anything useful on 32-bit systems.

Use the proper time64_t type when dealing with timestamps, and avoid
cutting down the time range unnecessarily. This also fixes the flawed
check for the alarm time being too far into the future.

The check for this condition is actually somewhat theoretical, as the
RTC counts till 2033 only anyways, and 2^32 seconds from now is not
before the year 2157 - at which point I hope nobody will be using this
hardware anymore.
