Oops.  The patch was supposed to fix _POSIX_SOURCE problems as well as
the things mentioned in the log message, but added this new one.

The correct fix probably involves using <sys/_timespec.h> in the
_POSIX_SOURCE case and <sys/timespec.h> in the !_POSIX_SOURCE case.
I already use the latter (instead of <sys/time.h>) locally.  I had
hoped to completely avoid using the former because it's better to have
actual struct members named st_[acm]time than #defines of these names
as __st_[acm]timespec.__tv_sec.  The latter is bad for debugging and
might not be standards conformant.
