    OK, but a trap for young players (ie, me): the absolute time is in ns
    since kernel boot, but the hypervisor wants an absolute time in ns since
    system boot. Everything works reasonably well for the first guest
    started early, so be sure to take a snapshot of hypervisor time early in
    order to get the correction...
