     The mirtime_getleaps() function returns a pointer, which is guaranteed to
     be not NULL, to a read-only array of time_t values that are leap seconds,
     terminated by a value of 0. This function uses a table which should be
     initialised with tzset() beforehand if mechanisms such as chroot(2) are

     The mirtime_isleap() function returns 1 if t is known to be a (positive)
     leap second, 0 otherwise.

     The remaining functions mentioned convert time values between a broken-
     down calendar date struct tm, a Modified Julian Date mirtime_mjd, seconds
     since the First of January, 1970, midnight UTC time_t, and POSIX time
     (seconds since the epoch, 86400 seconds per day), also stored in time_t.

     mjd_implode() and tm2timet() parse the fields tm_sec, tm_min, tm_hour,
     tm_mday, tm_mon, tm_year, tm_gmtoff of struct tm; mjd_explode() and
     timet2tm() fill in the fields tm_sec, tm_min, tm_hour, tm_mday, tm_mon,
     tm_year, tm_wday, tm_yday with sensible values and tm_isdst, tm_gmtoff,
     tm_zone with null values.

     To use these functions, macros and types, include at least one of
     <sys/time.h> and/or <time.h> and check whether the macro
     SYSKERN_MIRTIME_H is defined (currently to the value 1).


     time_t is a signed integral type of 32 or 64 bit, machine-dependent.

     struct tm consists of the following slots:

           int tm_sec;             /* seconds [0-60] */
           int tm_min;             /* minutes [0-59] */
           int tm_hour;            /* hours [0-23] */
           int tm_mday;            /* day of month [1-31] */
           int tm_mon;             /* month of year - 1 [0-11] */
           time_t tm_year;         /* year - 1900 */
           int tm_wday;            /* day of week (0 = sunday) */
           int tm_yday;            /* day of year [0-365] */
           int tm_isdst;           /* summer time effective? [0/1] */
           long tm_gmtoff;         /* offset from UTC in seconds */
           char *tm_zone;          /* abbreviation of timezone name */

     mirtime_mjd consists of the following slots:

           time_t mjd;             /* day of modified julian calendar */
           int32_t sec;            /* second within the day [0-86400] */


     chroot(2), mktime(3), tzset(3)


     This set of functions expects your operating system to not conform to
     IEEE Std 1003.1 ("POSIX") for correct time_t handling.


     This API replaced a DJB-inspired TAI API with MirOS #11.


     Thorsten "mirabilos" Glaser <tg@mirbsd.org>


     The leap second table is read from the timezone information file. This
     has implications on the location of the file and its up-to-dateness.

     There is no method to select POSIX-conformant behaviour. It's probably
     better this way, though.

     Few sanitising of values is done, but the functions are considered safe.
