It seems like AIX also has a kernel issue with timestamp after year 2038. The year 2107 is stored as year 1972.

test_add_file_after_2107 (test.test_zipfile.StoredTestsWithSourceFile) ... skipped 'Linux VFS/XFS kernel bug detected: mtime_ns=91301504000000000'

>>> print(datetime.datetime.fromtimestamp(91301504))
1972-11-22 18:31:44


The test is now skipped if the kernel or filesystem stores incorrectly the timestamp 4386268800 (2108-12-30). I don't think that we can do much more.
