I think it is unstandardised.  It had previously been called
st_createtime but Eric Allman changed it to st_birthtime to avoid
potential confusion with st_ctime.  I think we should ask the FreeBSD
implementers if there is any standard or guideline that (other)
implementers of the feature should be aware of.  I have CC'ed Kirk

It occurs to me in particular to wonder how stat(2) reports to the
caller that the filesystem containing the file just examined doesn't
support st_birthtime.  That is, how is "this data is not available for
this file" reported by FreeBSD?
