Is there way to set file creation time effectively?

utimes() works well when I try to set modification time and access time.
And if the target creation time is earlier than the original file creation 
it works too.

But, utimes() does not seem to work with the target creation time of later 
the original time.
The bypass solution is to copy the file and apply utimes() to the copied 
file, which
seems to brute.

Is there any effective way to change the file creation time?
