Provide timespec to guests rather than jiffies clock.
A non-periodic clock_event_device and the "jiffies" clock don't mix well: tick_handle_periodic() can go into an infinite loop. Currently lguest guests use the jiffies clock when the TSC is unusable. Instead, make the Host write the current time into the lguest page on every interrupt. This doesn't cost much but is more precise and at least as accurate as the jiffies clock. It also gets rid of the GET_WALLCLOCK hypercall. Also, delay setting sched_clock until our clock is set up, otherwise the early printk timestamps can go backwards (not harmful, just ugly).
