I think the overall idea is very interesting, but I also think that it should be

kvmclock change will "fight" with ntpd. Also, the command "# date 09091323" (or
whatever) ceases to work like it does on bare-metal, so I think it has to be an
opt-in feature.
I don't disagree.

Actually, I thought about that myself a few hours after I sent the patch.
Avi, do you have a word on that ?

Chris' arguments are compelling IMO.
