Have a box with Xen running more than a day? (I currently don't), and if
you do, try the above date command. You'll see what I'm talking about.

The example is bad, but I didn't have a machine to show that has been
running a Xen kernel for more than an hour or two.

Oh, I see. But it kind of feels silly to work around a synthetic correctness
test. If we make wc_sec implicitly signed (which is pretty gross) then we
lose 1 bit of magnitude which also isn't great -- I'd rather be able to
represent years 2038 through 2106 than 1902 through 1970.

Isn't unsigned long 64 bits on 64 bit systems anyway?

That would give us a lot more time...

Politics is the struggle between those who want to make their country
the best in the world, and those who believe it already is.  Each group
calls the other unpatriotic.
