The process to upstream 32-bit RISC-V (RV32) has been going on for over two years now. This talk will cover why the process has taken so long, what is upstream and what still remains to be done.

This will hopefully be the first upstream architecture that is 32-bit but has a 64-bit time_t. This means that the architecture is y2038 safe and only works on the Linux kernel 5.4+.

This talk will cover the Y2038 Unix Epoch overflow problem and what is being done to fix it. It will describe how and why this applies to the 32-bit RISC-V glibc port.
