There are numerous detectors I have seen over the years: rcu, clocksource,
hard/soft, hang, fs, network, wq?, etc.. I am not sure it is easy to put
them all in one place or makes sense.

I know working with the kvm folks, when they swap back in, the real clock
can do a massive jump forward and causes a flood of warnings such that they
had to 'touch' all of them before running the vm again.

Cheers,
Don
