IIUC the interface you're probably speaking about is common to both ARM and x86
on Xen[*] (since Xen 4.6) i.e.

	now.tv_sec  = ((uint64_t)s->wc_sec_hi << 32) | s->wc_sec;

s representing struct shared_info like on ARM (there's a 32-bit hole where
wc_sec_hi is placed on x86_64/ARM). Except on x86 32-bit guests wc_sec_hi is
located elsewhere.
