--- Comment #1 from Mark Johnston <markj_at_FreeBSD.org> ---
The code in question is:

3181         setbirthtime = 0;                                                  
3182         if (numtimes < 3 && !VOP_GETATTR(vp, &vattr, td->td_ucred) &&      
3183             timespeccmp(&ts[1], &vattr.va_birthtime, < ))                  
3184                 setbirthtime = 1;

i.e., we set setbirthtime = 1, when ts[1] < vattr.va_birthtime.  The timespecs
are offsets relative to the epoch, so ts[1] < vattr.va_birthtime means that the
input time ts[1] is older than the recorded birth time.  I believe this agrees
with the documentation, so I don't understand where the bug is.
