[Bug ports/1176] sys_times return value

This is a kernel problem.  The kernel should not return negative values unless
it's due to true overflow.  I'd say the kernel ought to subtract INITIAL_JIFFIES
when converting to clock_t for sys_times.  But at any rate, it is not something
glibc can do anything about.
