Subject[PATCH v3 1/6] KVM-HDR: KVM Steal time implementation
Date
To implement steal time, we need the hypervisor to pass the guest information
about how much time was spent running other processes outside the VM.
This is per-vcpu, and using the kvmclock structure for that is an abuse
we decided not to make.

In this patchset, I am introducing a new msr, KVM_MSR_STEAL_TIME, that
holds the memory area address containing information about steal time

This patch contains the headers for it. I am keeping it separate to facilitate
backports to people who wants to backport the kernel part but not the
hypervisor, or the other way around.
