Dirhatamas

Hello,
I came across this interesting passage in the Rig Veda 1.22.2 
recently: 

Dirghatamas, the son of mamata, has grown old after the tenth yuga 
has passed, he is the Brahma of those who seek to obtain the object 
of their pious works, he is their charioteer.  

Can anybody throw further light on this archaic passage?
Yuga is an age of a cycle.
Brahma is the Upanishadic creator god.
Dirghatamas?

Anthanarik
