Subject: [PATCH 2/2] hyperv: Implement Time Synchronization using host time sample

In current hyper-v time sync service,it only gets the initial clock time
from the host. It didn't process the following time samples. This change
introduced a module parameter called host_time_sync. If it is set to true,
the guest will periodically sychronize it's time with the host clock using
host time sample. By default it is disabled, because we still recommend
user to configure NTP for time synchronization.
