We must ensure both of the host and guest using the same clocksource.
get_device_system_crosststamp will check the clocksource of guest and we also need check
the clocksource in host, and struct type can't be transferred from host to guest using arm hypercall.
now we lack of a mechanism to check the current clocksource. I think this will be useful if we add one.

Thanks
