Subject: [PATCH v3 1/6] KVM-HDR: KVM Steal time implementation
Date: Fri, 11 Feb 2011 13:19:19 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1297448364-14051-2-git-send-email-glommer@redhat.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1297448364-14051-1-git-send-email-glommer@redhat.com>

To implement steal time, we need the hypervisor to pass the guest information
about how much time was spent running other processes outside the VM.
This is per-vcpu, and using the kvmclock structure for that is an abuse
we decided not to make.

In this patchset, I am introducing a new msr, KVM_MSR_STEAL_TIME, that
holds the memory area address containing information about steal time

This patch contains the headers for it. I am keeping it separate to facilitate
backports to people who wants to backport the kernel part but not the
hypervisor, or the other way around.
