Subject[PATCH 11/11] KVM: Improve local apic timer wraparound handling
Date
From: Kevin Pedretti <kevin.pedretti@gmail.com>

Better handle wrap-around cases when reading the APIC CCR
(current count register). Also, if ICR is 0, CCR should also
be 0... previously reading CCR before setting ICR would result
in a large kinda-random number.
