[LTP] [PATCH DRAFT] syscalls/stime: convert to new lib, use direct syscall

Hi Cyril, Steve

According to the source code of glibc, glibc implements stime() by 
instead of __NR_stime, and some arches(e.g. x86_64) don't define 
__NR_stime directly.
Therefore these updated tests will be skipped on some arches that don't 
define __NR_stime.

If glibc implements stime(), should we use it diectly?  If not, should 
we use __NR_stime or __NR_settimeofday?

Please see detail at sysdeps/unix/stime.c in glibc:
stime (const time_t *when)
   struct timeval tv;

   if (when == NULL)
       __set_errno (EINVAL);
       return -1;

   tv.tv_sec = *when;
   tv.tv_usec = 0;
   return __settimeofday (&tv, (struct timezone *) 0);

Best Regards,
Xiao Yang
