'Linux 5.1 continues the massive undertaking in preparing the kernel
for the Year 2038 problem. Phoronix:

The Linux kernel has been seeing "Y2038" work for years and the effort
is far from over. Thomas Gleixner (a Linux kernel developer who serves
as a member of the technical advisory board at The Linux Foundation)
sent in the latest Y2038 work for the Linux 5.1 kernel, which after a
lot of ground work in previous kernels has introduced the first set of
syscalls that are Year 2038 safe.'
