Well, we can't really change RPCs on the fly like this, otherwise you
can't upgrade running translators first or libc first.  You need to
introduce a new RPC with the new interface, and in libc cope with
translators which don't know the new RPC yet by reverting to the old

That makes sense. I tested the patches by cross-compiling the system and I did not thought about compatibility issues.

I'm attaching the modified patches (still trying to figure how to reply using git send-email). I added a new file_utimens RPC to handle timespecs in fs.defs and changed the glibc and translator implementations accordingly.

Note that I also added a two macros to convert between timespecs and time_value_t in libshouldbeinlibc/timefmt.h (one was taken from the exec server). Not sure if this is the best place.
