Subject[PATCH 11/12] Use xen_vcpuop_clockevent, xen_clocksource and xen wallclock.
Date
From: Stefano Stabellini <stefano.stabellini@eu.citrix.com>

Use xen_vcpuop_clockevent instead of hpet and APIC timers as main
clockevent device on all vcpus, use the xen wallclock time as wallclock
instead of rtc and use xen_clocksource as clocksource.
The pv clock algorithm needs to work correctly for the xen_clocksource
and xen wallclock to be usable, only modern Xen versions offer a
reliable pv clock in HVM guests (XENFEAT_hvm_safe_pvclock).

Using the hpet as clocksource means a VMEXIT every time we read/write to
the hpet mmio addresses, pvclock give us a better rating without
VMEXITs. Same goes for the xen wallclock and xen_vcpuop_clockevent
