> The Linux kernel is going to use 64-bit integer even on 32-bit CPU to store timestamps, to simplify the code (to avoid the structure).

Read this article:

"One of the first changes merged for 3.17 is to simply get rid of the non-scalar form of ktime_t and force all architectures to use the 64-bit nanosecond count representation. This change may slow things down on 32-bit systems; in particular, conversions from other time formats may be significantly slower. But, as noted in the changelog, the ARM and x86 architectures were already using the scalar format anyway, so they will not get any slower."
