 .. now that the RTC code is in and I've figured out whats going on
 there, the problem has become obvious.
 Changing the dom0 clock by > 1 second seems to trigger a re-read of
 the wall clock in the DomU. The DomU sets the TOD to the wall clock -
 but this unfortunately sets it to the hypervisor start time rather
 than including the start time + uptime.
 The fix is to figure out the code path(s) in the xen clock code and
 fix the TOD update to be correct.
