[PATCH 4.9 21/78] reiserfs: change j_timestamp type to time64_t

4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@xxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit 8b73ce6a4bae4fe12bcb2c361c0da4183c2e1b6f ]

This uses the deprecated time_t type but is write-only, and could be
removed, but as Jeff explains, having a timestamp can be usefule for
post-mortem analysis in crash dumps.

In order to remove one of the last instances of time_t, this changes the
type to time64_t, same as j_trans_start_time.
