Subject: [PATCH v5 4/6] tsc: implement the extended tsc reading function

By doing that, add tsc clocksource to a list of KVM clocksources
providing valid cycle values, meaning that KVM can use its masterclock.

This is a part of the work aiming to move to a more simple scheme of
masterclock related values calculation in KVM.
