Ok, so really, as soon as the Dom0 time is set by NTP, all guests will
see the right time? That makes more sense, and means the window for
these sorts of issues is reasonably quite small.
It's a small window but it's occurring in our automated test system.

David: So I'm less inclined to merge this individual change, but if you
still feel strongly about it, let me know and we can circle around on it
after you've addressed the specific issues I pointed out earlier.
This patch was the actual bug fix but I've reworked it to use the
pvclock_gtod notifier chain as this seemed to be what KVM hosts were
using to maintain a clock for guests.  Please review the new series, thanks.
Looks good.

John if you are OK I am thinking to push this to Linus shortly as it is
fixing a bug.
I'm really not sure I'd call this a bug.  That seems like an
over-reaction to a misconfigured system.

Or if there is a bug, I'm not sure its been clearly explained.
The #1 patch - b/c you try to set the RTC time and it actually never takes. 
on the next time the machine is booted the time is again off.

Ok. Yea, that one I'm fine with and have queued for 3.11.

If you want to push it as a bug fix for 3.10, I'll leave it to you to push to Linus.
