It really just moves compat_sys_clock_adjtime() into the same
#ifdef CONFIG_COMPAT_32BIT_TIME that hides the surrounding
functions.

Currently CONFIG_COMPAT_32BIT_TIME is used only as a subset
of CONFIG_COMPAT, and the plan was to have 32-bit architectures
enable it later so they could get access to all the functions
implementing 32-bit time with a patch similar to what I'm testing
with, see https://pastebin.com/F3QZdyin for the current draft that
I use for testing.

We already spent several review rounds coming just discussing the
naming of the macros etc before we decided on the
CONFIG_64BIT_TIME and CONFIG_COMPAT_32BIT_TIME
symbol, but if you have a better suggestion (as part of moving
away from the compat_ naming), we can change all that again.
