Subject[PATCH RFC: kvm tsc virtualization 01/20] Move TSC read to vmx_vcpu_put
Date
This makes the VMX implementation match the SVM implementation as far
as when the TSC is read. This means last_tsc is measured at the time
of relinquishing VM operation, rather than at CPU switch time.
That may seem non-optimal for now, but it is a preparatory step for
unifying the TSC code in both VMX and SVM and also for allowing
non-real time based TSCs.
