in mktime the overflow check is not strictly ok,
time_t is signed so the check relies on signed overflow

	long long t = __tm_to_secs(tm);
	// ...
	if ((time_t)t != t) goto error;

i'm not sure how to do the check efficiently without
invoking ub, but at least this should be commented

time_t seem to be long on all supported platforms so this should work:

if (t>LONG_MAX || t<LONG_MIN) goto error;
