Good point.
I should check for rtc_clock == host_clock.

I don't, in fact in previous versions of this patch series I tried to do
that but it is difficult and makes the common code worse, so I followed
Anthony's suggestion of just disabling the rtc_clock.

I see. It shouldn't surprise you that I completely disagree with Anthony on
this. :)

Give me some credit at least...

The original patches didn't disable the RTC, it introduced a half-neutered Xen specific RTC.

My original suggestion (which I still think is the best approach) is to change the RTC emulation to not use a second timer at all.
