    After the time64 system call ABI was finalized in linux-5.1, work on using this in the C libraries got a lot more serious. The release of musl-1.2 is now imminent and will provide time64 for all newly compiled code.

    Thank you musl for forging ahead with this important work.

    Edit: also this:

    So far it is looking good for the distro port, as most of the y2038 problems have already been found by the various BSD Unixes that changed over years ago (thanks guys!),

    Thank you BSD folks.

      Oh. Very apropos. :-)
