Re: [Xen-devel] [PATCH 1/2] cpu steal time accounting

One nice side effect of having this feature is that the explicit stolen
time counter (or available time counter) can be dropped entirely from
the interface, since its value can be inferred from the real time
counter and available time counter (or stolen time counter).

I don't understand the last paragraph here. It's not true that, for example,
 available_time = real_time - stolen_time

Ah, okay, I see that in fact it is. :-)

Why not just have a halted_time instead? I think that's what we'd go for in Xen.
