This will break applications that include <linux/time.h> manually.

I previously sent a patch to use libc-compat to make compilation succeed
when both are included in the case where <linux/time.h> is included after
<time.h>.

  https://lkml.org/lkml/2016/9/12/872

The inverse will require changes to the libc header to avoid redefining
symbols already defined by <linux/time.h>

The second patch in that 2-patch set included <linux/time.h>
unconditionally after the fix. This broke builds that also included
<time.h> in the wrong order. I did not resubmit the first patch as a
stand-alone, as it is not sufficient to avoid breakage.
