To implement steal time, we need the hypervisor to pass the guest information

This is per-vcpu, and using the kvmclock structure for that is an abuse
we decided not to make.

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