Hmmm... I'm much more worried about this case and would
like to understand this better.  If this is reproducible
on real-world QPI systems, and there is no way to a priori
determine that "this is a system where even though the
Invariant TSC bit is set, this system may drift", then
there is no way Invariant TSC can be exposed to a guest.

/me can hear Jeremy biting his tongue hard to avoid
saying "I told you so". ;-)
