Most users of jffs2 are 32-bit systems that traditionally only support
timestamps using a 32-bit signed time_t, in the range from years 1902 to
2038. On 64-bit systems, jffs2 however interpreted the same timestamps
as unsigned values, reading back negative times (before 1970) as times
between 2038 and 2106.

Now that Linux supports 64-bit inode timestamps even on 32-bit systems,
let's use the second interpretation everywhere to allow jffs2 to be
used on 32-bit systems beyond 2038 without a fundamental change to the
inode format.

This has a slight risk of regressions, when existing files with timestamps
before 1970 are present in file system images and are now interpreted
as future time stamps. I considered moving the wraparound point a bit,
e.g. to 1960, in order to deal with timestamps that ended up on Dec 31,
1969 due to incorrect timezone handling. However, this would complicate
the implementation unnecessarily, so I went with the simplest possible
method of extending the timestamps.

Writing files with timestamps before 1970 or after 2106 now results
in those times being clamped in the file system.
