I'm somewhat surprised that this wasn't done earlier.  I wonder if there's
some subtle reason why this won't work.   How well tested is this?

http://www.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/000095399/functions/utimes.html
lists a slight difference between utime and utimes in the handling
of EPERM/EACCESS:

I don't really understand how that should be implemented in different
ways, but it might be the reason that we have separate functions.

Because, the following patch didn't hit -mm. :)

	All checks in sys_utime() and do_utimes() are duplicated as well as a
	comment. sys_utime() will now use do_utimes() after getting times from
	userspace and projecting them to struct timeval [2].

Nevermind.

I don't know. Compat syscall -- I'm not touching it. Normal syscall --
time_t is long on all archs, suseconds_t is sometimes int, but we're
putting zero there.

> How well tested is this?

It passed utime tests in December's LTP.

Present sys_utime() and do_utimes() are identical, except the former
does direct getusering into new attributes, and the latter accept "int
dfd" instead of hardcoded current working directory.
