Subject[PATCH 10/11] Support VIRQ_TIMER and pvclock on HVM
Date
Use the paravirtualized timer (VIRQ_TIMER) as timer and the
paravirtualized clock (pvclock) as wallclock on HVM domains too.
Any interaction with emulated hardware is not very fast, so using the
paravirtualized timer instead of the emulated hpet is defenitely a
performance improvement.
