On-disk combines the values from these structures in a different form:

          offset  bits
DoubleSeconds  0  5
Minute         5  6
Hour          11  5
Day           16  5
Month         21  4
Year          25  7

Just compile tested for now.

date_time_t was only used in a few functions and there was a lot of
copying of the same fields between the two structs. Also some code was
duplicated to do the same thing for each of the structs.
