[PATCH 08/16] KVM-HDR: Implement kvmclock systemtime over KVM - KVM Virtual Memory

From: Glauber Costa
Date: Mon Jan 24 2011 - 13:09:56 EST

As a proof of concept to KVM - Kernel Virtual Memory, this patch
implements kvmclock per-vcpu systime grabbing on top of it. At first, it
may seem as a waste of work to just redo it, since it is working well. But over
the time, other MSRs were added - think ASYNC_PF - and more will probably come.
After this patch, we won't need to ever add another virtual MSR to KVM.

If the hypervisor fails to register the memory area, we switch back to legacy
behavior on things that were already present - like kvm clock.

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.
