[PATCH 11/16] KVM-HDR: KVM Steal time implementation

From: Glauber Costa
Date: Mon Jan 24 2011 - 13:10:17 EST

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.

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.
