KVM guest: fix bogus wallclock physical address calculation
commit a20316d2aa41a8f4fd171648bad8f044f6060826 upstream. The use of __pa() to calculate the address of a C-visible symbol is wrong, and can lead to unpredictable results. See arch/x86/include/asm/page.h for details. It should be replaced with __pa_symbol(), that does the correct math here, by taking relocations into account. This ensures the correct wallclock data structure physical address is passed to the hypervisor.
