Re-read the timebase before migrate was ported from x86 commit:
   6053a86fe7bd: kvmclock: reduce kvmclock difference on migration

The clock move makes the guest knows about the paused time between
the stop and migrate commands. This is an issue in an already-paused
VM because some side effects, like process stalls, could happen
after migration.

So, this patch checks the runstate of guest in the pre_save handler and
do not re-reads the timebase in case of paused state (cold migration).
