The user space 'timeval' definition is 16 bytes wide, with the layout
designed to be compatible between 32-bit and 64-bit, so it has to be like
this to match what user spaces sees with the old header files and a new
libc.

We don't yet know what the exact definition of timeval will be in all
libc implementations, but if they have a 32-bit tv_user field, it needs
padding next to it so the lower 32 bits are in the same place as they
would be using that 64-bit field I used.
