[Xen-devel] [PATCH 0/3] xen: fix various wallclock problems

This series (with some toolstack updates) corrects a number of cases
where a guest can see an incorrect wallclock time.

1. Systems with NTP won't periodically synchronize the hardware RTC so
the wallclock may be incorrect after a reboot.

2. The wallclock is always ~500 ms behind the correct time.

3. If the system time was stepped and NTP isn't synchronized yet, the
wallclock will still have the incorrect time.  The fix for this
requires the toolstack to synchronize the wallclock -- patch #3
provides the mechanism for this.
