Please put in a small sub-structure (or rename stime to something
meaningful).

Named constant.

I asked for 64-byte aligned structure, yes? Need to fault if bits 1-5
are set (to make sure the guest doesn't use an unadvertised feature and
break itself in the future).

We might also want to fault if the cpuid bit isn't present. We haven't
done so in the past but it makes some sense.

You are returning something other than the guest has written.

You are converting a guest physical address into a host virtual
address? Truncating it in the process.

Now you are converting it back. Also, you aren't checking the error
return from kvm_read_guest().

Error check.

No.

kvm_arch_vcpu_put() is also executed when we return to userspace. Do we
want to account that as steal time?

Do we want to execute this code even if steal time isn't enabled?

Please put this into a separate function.
