'struct timex' is one of the last users of 'struct timeval' and is
only referenced in one place in the kernel any more, to convert the
user space timex into the kernel-internal version on sparc64, with a
different tv_usec member type.

As a preparation for hiding the time_t definition and everything
using that in the kernel, change the implementation once more
to only convert the timeval member, and then enclose the
struct definition in an #ifdef.

v2: send a version that it at least build tested this time

If this looks ok to you, please queue it in the sparc git for v5.6
