[PATCH 0/2] default ps -W process start time to boot time when unavailable

non-elevated users can not access system startup process start times,
defaulting to time_t 0, displaying as Dec 31/Jan 1 depending on time zone,
so instead use system boot time, which is within seconds of correct,
to avoid WMI overhead getting correct system startup process start time

Brian Inglis (2):
  default ps -W process start time to system boot time when inaccessible, 0, -1
  get and convert boot time once and use as needed
