* These structs MUST NOT be changed.
* They are the ABI between hypervisor and guest OS.
* Both Xen and KVM are using this.
* pvclock_vcpu_time_info holds the system time and the tsc timestamp
* of the last update. So the guest can use the tsc delta to get a
* more precise system time. There is one per virtual cpu.
* pvclock_wall_clock references the point in time when the system
* time was zero (usually boot time), thus the guest calculates the
* current wall clock by adding the system time.
* Protocol for the "version" fields is: hypervisor raises it (making
* it uneven) before it starts updating the fields and raises it again
* (making it even) when it is done. Thus the guest can make sure the
* time values it got are consistent by checking the version before
* and after reading them.
