Oh wait, ns != sec * 10**9 here. "2147483647" is 2**31-1 (INT_MAX).

It looks like a bug in fill_time() of Modules/posixmodule.c. I suspect a bug in _PyLong_FromTime_t().

On this buildbot worker, we have:

    checking size of long long... 8
    checking size of time_t... 8

So _PyLong_FromTime_t() should be implemented as:

    return PyLong_FromLongLong((long long)t);

_PyLong_FromTime_t() raw value is exported in os.stat() as os.stat(filename)[8].

Attached exposes it:

vstinner@apu$ ./python 
os.utime (sec): 4386268800
os.stat (sec int): 4386268800
os.stat (sec float): 4386268800.0
os.stat (ns): 4386268800000000000

On Fedora 31 x86-64 with GCC 9.2.1, gcc -O3, _PyLong_FromTime_t() really just calls PyLong_FromLongLong():

(gdb) disassemble _PyLong_FromTime_t
