Subject[PATCH v2 1/7] Enable pvclock flags in vcpu_time_info structure
Date
This patch removes one padding byte and transform it into a flags
field. New versions of guests using pvclock will query these flags
upon each read.

Flags, however, will only be interpreted when the guest decides to.
It uses the pvclock_valid_flags function to signal that a specific
set of flags should be taken into consideration. Which flags are valid
are usually devised via HV negotiation.
