FOr the boottime we have kre's reply:
| hmmm... feels like KERN_BOOTTIMESPEC should be added instead,
| and the compat restored for this old API.
| or should have been 9 years ago :-(
ps: even if that might have been a reasonable thing to do, way back when,
now it woulldn't work, as there are parts of the tree that know it is a
timespec (before I started updating stuff) and other parts which did not.
There's no way to provide compat with both.
Not sure about the other part regarding bool.
