Libvirt would like to use lib/stat-time.h to portably get at nanosecond
timestamps from an LGPLv2+ license; but this file is currently licensed
LGPLv3+.  Any objections to relaxing the license, particularly since
POSIX 2008 guarantees that stat() should be returning this information
and the stat module is already LGPLv2+?
