    Subject[PATCH 6/9] Pit override.patch
    From
    The time_init_hook in paravirt-ops no longer functions in the correct manner
    after the integration of the hrtimers code. The problem is that now the
    call path for time initialization is:

    time_init :
    late_time_init = hpet_time_init;

    late_time_init -> hpet_time_init:
    setup_pit_timer (BAD)
    do_time_init --> (via paravirt.h)
    time_init_hook --> (via arch_hooks.h)
    time_init_hook (in SUBARCH/setup.c)

    If this isn't confusing enough, the paravirt case goes through an indirect
    function pointer in the paravirt-ops table. The problem is, by the time
    the paravirt hook is called, the pit timer is already enabled.

    But paravirt guests have their own timer, and don't want to use the PIT.
    Rather than intensify the struggle for power going on here, just make it
    all nice and simple and just unconditionally do all timer setup in
    the late_time_init hook. This also has the advantage of enabling timers
    in the same place in all code paths, so everyone has the same bugs and
    we don't have outliers who break other code because they turn on timer
    too early or too late.

    So the paravirt-ops time init function is now by default hpet_time_init,
    which is the time init function used for native hardware. Paravirt
    guests have the chance to override this when they setup the paravirt-ops
    table, and should need no change.
