DESCRIPTION
       stime() sets the system's idea of the time and date.  The time, pointed
       to by t, is measured in seconds since the Epoch, 1970-01-01 00:00:00
       +0000 (UTC).  stime() may be executed only by the superuser.

RETURN VALUE
       On success, zero is returned.  On error, -1 is returned, and errno is
       set appropriately.

ERRORS
       EFAULT Error in getting information from user space.

       EPERM  The calling process has insufficient privilege.  Under Linux,
              the CAP_SYS_TIME privilege is required.
