Great, looks exactly correct as far as it goes, but without the second
part (converting  ips_fix_ffdc_time() to use 64 bit time) it won't
actually work.  The problem is jiffies is a relative time measurement
and the RAID engine needs its real time clock setting periodically, so
there's no need to pass current_time (which is no longer current_time)
into ips_fix_ffdc_time(); just have that routine get the 64 bit time and
convert it to the format the card wants.
