Yes. As soon as I hack tsc_unstable to 1, things go wrong. When I hack
it back to 0, guest that wants kvm-clock boots again and seem to run fine.

This is issue #2, I guess. Issue #2 remains that the TSC is marked
unstable. I have the feeling that this is bogus, maybe due to lacking
suspend/resume awareness? The tsc clocksource does

clocksource_tsc.cycle_last = 0;

on resume...
