Merge branch 'js/larger-timestamps'
Some platforms have ulong that is smaller than time_t, and our historical use of ulong for timestamp would mean they cannot represent some timestamp that the platform allows. Invent a separate and dedicated timestamp_t (so that we can distingiuish timestamps and a vanilla ulongs, which along is already a good move), and then declare uintmax_t is the type to be used as the timestamp_t. * js/larger-timestamps: archive-tar: fix a sparse 'constant too large' warning use uintmax_t for timestamps date.c: abort if the system time cannot handle one of our timestamps timestamp_t: a new data type for timestamps PRItime: introduce a new "printf format" for timestamps parse_timestamp(): specify explicitly where we parse timestamps t0006 & t5000: skip "far in the future" test when time_t is too limited t0006 & t5000: prepare for 64-bit timestamps ref-filter: avoid using `unsigned long` for catch-all data type
