Re: [Xen-devel] [PATCHl] localtime basis for paravirtualized guests

Some para-virtualized OS's (eg. NetWare) assume they are starting from a localtime time base, and our start-of-day time information should allow such a guest to work without gross modifications.  Xen already make such an allowance for fully virtualized guests.  This is just closing the gap.

Why is this functionality needed? what is the equivalent when running
on bare metal?
