How does that work?  I thought every domU has its own software system
clock updated by regular interrupts e.g. at 100Hz or 1000Hz.  This
would require running ntpd to synchronize the clock to some external
reference clock.  Or is the gettimeofday system call modified in domU
so that it communicates to dom0 to get the time, i.e. no more
interrupt driven software clock in the domU?
