parentipv6: use ktime_t for internal timestamps (diff)
net: sctp: avoid incorrect time_t use
We want to avoid using time_t in the kernel because of the y2038 overflow problem. The use in sctp is not for storing seconds at all, but instead uses microseconds and is passed as 32-bit on all machines. This patch changes the type to u32, which better fits the use.
