Maybe there is some reason why you want to do that, but at least from
a mktime64() standpoint, it's completely pointless.

Now, one difference is that mktime64() only handles "at the second"
events, so fro mktime, the "repeat the second" is basically an atomic
thing, and there is no real visibility into what happens *during* the

For gettimeofday(), you actually have to handle the whole "can't go
backwards, but you have nanoseconds etc" complication. Very different.
