Formatting timestamps in the kernel

My driver creates an entry in /proc that displays time related events. Is
there a way to format timestamps, as absolute date & time, honoring
timezones etc., within the kernel?

I think I read somewhere that timezones are considered a userspace concept,
and as such are not supported within the kernel.
