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

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

Add optional delivery time (SO_TXTIME) offload for virtio-net.

The Linux TCP/IP stack tries to avoid bursty transmission and network
congestion through pacing: computing an skb delivery time based on
congestion information. Userspace protocol implementations can achieve
the same with SO_TXTIME. This may also reduce scheduling jitter and
improve RTT estimation.

Pacing can be implemented in ETF or FQ qdiscs or offloaded to NIC
hardware. Allow guests to offload for the same reasons.

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.
