Isn't kernel supposed to zero out padding on its own?
At least comment in kernel's get_timespec64 says so:

	/* Zero out the padding for 32 bit systems or in compat mode */
	if (IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_64BIT_TIME) && in_compat_syscall())
		kts.tv_nsec &= 0xFFFFFFFFUL;

The code looks buggy though. It fails to zero out the padding in
32-bit kernels. That part is probably broken since
98f76206b3350 ("compat: Cleanup in_compat_syscall() callers").

And, hmm, is CONFIG_64BIT_TIME enabled anywhere?
