Objet: [pve-devel] [PATCH qemu-server] fix Bug #615 Windows guests      
suddenly hangs after couple times of migration

Windows has a clock/tick problem when it is live-migrated. 
This problem ends in a pseudo freeze status. 
The solution is to stop the clock, when we suspend the VM for live-migration. 

see man kvm -rtc clock=vm 

The drawback is the VM will lose a little time on every live migration. 
So with this setting it is recommended to have a time-sync client in the VM to 
keep the time.
