[Introduction will follow]

Changelog
---------

v2

 - add tsc_offset field to struct kvm_vcpu_arch
 - drop read_tsc_offset()
 - add per-vcpu dir entries in debugfs
 - export TSC scaling info (besides TSC offset)
 - export the TSC offset as a signed number
 - drop patch that wrongly tried to improve error
   handling in kvm_create_vm_debugfs()

Intro
-----

This series exports a VM's TSC offset and TSC scaling
information to user-space via a new per-vcpu directory
in debugfs. For example:

  /sys/kernel/debug/kvm/66828-10/vcpu0/tsc-offset
  /sys/kernel/debug/kvm/66828-10/vcpu0/tsc-scaling-ratio
  /sys/kernel/debug/kvm/66828-10/vcpu0/tsc-scaling-ratio-frac-bits

The TSC offset in particular is needed in user-space
in order for tracing tools, such as trace-cmd, to be
able to merge the host and guest traces using the
host TSC. This is explained in detail in this thread:
