Serialize a UTC datetime into an integer number of nanoseconds since the epoch

Intended for use with serdes serialize_with attribute.


use chrono::serde::ts_nanoseconds::serialize as to_nano_ts;
struct S {
    #[serde(serialize_with = "to_nano_ts")]
    time: DateTime<Utc>

let my_s = S {
    time: Utc.ymd(2018, 5, 17).and_hms_nano(02, 04, 59, 918355733),
let as_string = serde_json::to_string(&my_s)?;
assert_eq!(as_string, r#"{"time":1526522699918355733}"#);
