Committed, CRIS port: fix fallout from time_t defaulting to 64 bits

Hans-Peter Nilsson
It's been a while...  I see the CRIS port broke with the
not-that-recent time_t-default-to-64-bit change, observable by a
few test-cases in the gcc fortran(!) tests failing, regressing
when trying a recent newlib.

This is a two-part belt-and-suspenders change: first, adjust the CRIS port
gettimeofday syscall (the only one in newlib/CRIS passing a time_t or
struct timeval) to handle a userspace 64-bit time_t and secondly default
time_t to 32-bit long anyway.  I considered making the local
kernel_timeval copy in _gettimeofday conditional on (userspace) time_t
being 64 bits, but thought it not worth bothering with the few move insns.

The effect of a 64-bit time_t is however observable as longer simulation
time when running the gcc testsuite and as bigger binaries without any
actual upside from the larger time_t size, so I thought better make the
default for this port go back to being a "long" again, meeting
expectations from earlier newlib versions.

Tested by running the gcc testsuite over the three combinations of two
parts of the patch and observing the expected changes.  Committed.
(No, the ChangeLog entry is not committed as such.)

        Adjust for syscall and userspace having different time_t or timeval.
        * cris/linunistd.h (kernel_time_t, kernel_suseconds_t, kernel_timeval):
        New types.
        (gettimeofday): Change the type of the first argument to be a
        pointer to a struct kernel_timeval.
        * cris/gensyscalls (_gettimeofday): Use an intermediate struct
        kernel_timeval for the syscall and initialize the result from

        * (cris, crisv32): Default to "long" time_t.
