[Xen-devel] manipulation of RDTSC values in VT xen

Hi, I'm currently working with Xen unstable on a VT enabled machine and was wondering if someone could point me to the virtualization point (or somewhere that I might manipulate) the return value of the RDTSC instruction when issued in a guest domain.

Also, it is my understanding that this value is stored per-VM in the VT architecture, and thus is kept accurate as if the operating system were running solitary on non-VT hardware. Is this correct? I am currently investigating the fidelity of the environment provided by VT Xen to programs run on guest operating systems.

Thanks for any insight you may have to offer,
