Add conversions to and from struct timespec to module interface.
Time values are a fundamental data type, and such conversions are hard to implement within modules because of the various forms of time values in Emacs Lisp. Adding dedicated conversion functions can significantly simplify module code dealing with times. This approach uses nanosecond precision. While Emacs in theory has support for higher-precision time values, in practice most languages and standards, such as POSIX, C, Java, and Go, have settled on nanosecond-precision integers to represent time. * src/emacs-module.h.in: Add header for struct timespec. * src/module-env-27.h: Add module functions for time conversion. * src/emacs-module.c (module_extract_time, module_make_time): New functions. (initialize_environment): Use them. * test/data/emacs-module/mod-test.c (Fmod_test_add_nanosecond): New test function. (emacs_module_init): Define it. * test/src/emacs-module-tests.el (mod-test-add-nanosecond/valid) (mod-test-add-nanosecond/nil, mod-test-add-nanosecond/invalid): New unit tests. * doc/lispref/internals.texi (Module Values): Document time conversion functions.
