Subject[PATCH 07/16] KVM-GST: Implement wallclock over KVM - KVM Virtual Memory
Date
As a proof of concept to KVM - Kernel Virtual Memory, this patch
implements wallclock grabbing on top of it. At first, it may seem
as a waste of work to just redo it, since it is working well. But over the
time, other MSRs were added - think ASYNC_PF - and more will probably come.
After this patch, we won't need to ever add another virtual MSR to KVM.

If the hypervisor fails to register the memory area, we switch back to legacy
behavior on things that were already present - like kvm clock.

This patch contains the hypervisor guest implementation for it. I am keeping it
separate to facilitate backports to people who wants to backport
the kernel part but not the hypervisor, or the other way around.
