Few months ago I sent a mail to stable at in the hope to 
discuss struct timeval posix conformance in RELENG_6.

Given the few answers, I may have targetted the wrong mailing list or 
this change has no interest. So, here are the questions again :

- Do you want FreeBSD 6 to conform posix specs for struct timeval ? 
(it's not always a right thing to do to strictly conform standards)

- Is it ok to do it ? (if i'm correct there is a minor abi change and 
this could be a strong reason to stay as is)

Best regards.
