Subject[PATCH 15/40] KVM: SVM: Adjust tsc_offset only if tsc_unstable
Date
From: Joerg Roedel <joerg.roedel@amd.com>

The tsc_offset adjustment in svm_vcpu_load is executed
unconditionally even if Linux considers the host tsc as
stable. This causes a Linux guest detecting an unstable tsc
in any case.
This patch removes the tsc_offset adjustment if the host tsc
is stable. The guest will now get the benefit of a stable
tsc too.
