Subject[PATCH 30/40] KVM: VMX: initialize TSC offset relative to vm creation time
Date
From: Marcelo Tosatti <mtosatti@redhat.com>

VMX initializes the TSC offset for each vcpu at different times, and
also reinitializes it for vcpus other than 0 on APIC SIPI message.

This bug causes the TSC's to appear unsynchronized in the guest, even if
the host is good.

Older Linux kernels don't handle the situation very well, so
gettimeofday is likely to go backwards in time:

http://www.mail-archive.com/kvm@vger.kernel.org/msg02955.html
http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=2025534&group_id=180599&atid=893831

Fix it by initializating the offset of each vcpu relative to vm creation
time, and moving it from vmx_vcpu_reset to vmx_vcpu_setup, out of the
APIC MP init path.
