    Well, any steal time clock will be hypervisor specific, but if we agree
    that anything that enables CONFIG_PARAVIRT_TIME_ACCOUNTING provides a
    u64 steal_time_clock(int cpu) function then all should be well, right?

    The bit you have in kvm is almost that, except it assumes cpu ==
    this_cpu.

    You simply cannot rely on the silly tick accounting to drive any clock,
    its archaic.
