Subject: [PATCH rfc 2/3] virtio-net: support receive timestamp

From: Willem de Bruijn <willemb@...gle.com>

Add optional PTP hardware timestamp offload for virtio-net.

Accurate RTT measurement requires timestamps close to the wire.
Introduce virtio feature VIRTIO_NET_F_RX_TSTAMP. If negotiated, the
virtio-net header is expanded with room for a timestamp. A host may
pass receive timestamps for all or some packets. A timestamp is valid
if non-zero.

The timestamp straddles (virtual) hardware domains. Like PTP, use
international atomic time (CLOCK_TAI) as global clock base. It is
guest responsibility to sync with host, e.g., through kvm-clock.
