get_seconds() is deprecated in favor of ktime_get_real_seconds(),
which returns a 64-bit timestamp.

In the SYSV file system, the superblock timestamp is only 32 bits
wide, and it is used to check whether a file system is clean, so
the best solution seems to be to force a wraparound and explicitly
convert it to an unsigned 32-bit value.

This is independent of the inode timestamps that are also 32-bit
wide on disk and that come from current_time().

Originally sent on Jun 19, got an Ack but no other reply.

Christoph apparently hasn't applied any sysvfs patches in many years,
so I'd like someone else to take this one.

Al or Andrew, could you take this patch for 4.19 as well?
