I *think* "No domains have emulated TSC" will be printed
if there are no domains other than dom0 currently running,
so this may not be definitive.

Also note that tsc_mode=0 means "do the right thing for
this hardware platform" but, if the domain is saved/restored
or live-migrated, TSC will start being emulated. See
tscmode.txt in xen/Documentation for more detail.

Lastly, I haven't tested this code in quite some time,
the code for PV and HVM is different, and I've never
tested it with xl, only with xm.  So bitrot is possible,
though hopefully unlikely.
