Again, this wants to be split into infrastructure and usage.

This is KVM only, so please can we have a name for that struct member
which reflects this?

If this is an attempt to provide a kernel-doc comment for this function,
then it's clearly a failed attempt and aside of that malformatted.

Why? There is no reason for being called from interrupt context and
nothing inforces it.

No. That's broken.

    timekeeping_inject_virtual_suspend_time();

    do_settimeofday() or do_adjtimex()

       timekeeping_update(tk, TK_MIRROR...);

and your change to the shadow timekeeper is gone.

Of course there is also no justification for this approach. What's wrong
with updating it right away?

Please sort variables in reverse fir tree order and not randomly as you
see fit.

cummrative?

It's absolutely unclear how this storage and diff magic works and the
comment is not helping someone not familiar with the implementation of
kvm_get_suspend_time() and the related code at all. Please explain
non-obvious logic properly.

Thanks,
