OK, here's the updated patch:
1) hpet instead of vhpet
2) against 3.2-testing tip

This will work without the acpi changes so could be checked in
independently.  Though it may be a bit misleading for the
guest to print out that it found an hpet in acpi and then
be unable to use it, the acpi part is largely cosmetic
and (as you point out) a bit tricky so better left for
your capable hands.
