I imagine the real change is that your glib2 has been upgraded to the
latest and greatest (2.32?) which does the deprecation.

FWIW I *think* we're still building the "universal" LibO on a
RHEL-4-alike baseline so we'd need some route to use the api that exists
on glib2-2.4.7 (!, ?) so we can't unconditionally use g_source_get_time

Either need some ifdefs or seeing as docs now claim that
g_source_get_current_time ignores source and is the same as
g_get_current_time and a quick peek at the code confirms this just use
that instead, i.e.

I'd personally skip it for cherry-picking to 3-5
