Subject[PATCH 10/17] Make KVM clock computation work for other scales
Date
The math in kvm_get_time_scale relies on the fact that
NSEC_PER_SEC < 2^32. To use the same function to compute
arbitrary time scales, we must extend the first reduction
step to shrink the base rate to a 32-bit value, and
possibly reduce the scaled rate into a 32-bit as well.

Note we must take care to avoid an arithmetic overflow
when scaling up the tps32 value (this could not happen
with the fixed scaled value of NSEC_PER_SEC, but can
happen with scaled rates above 2^31.
