Subject[PATCH 4.14 62/68] x86/xen/time: set pvclock flags on xen_time_init()
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Joao Martins <joao.m.martins@oracle.com>

commit b888808093113ae7d63d213272d01fea4b8329ed upstream.

Specifically check for PVCLOCK_TSC_STABLE_BIT and if this bit is set,
then set it too on pvclock flags. This allows Xen clocksource to use it
and thus speeding up xen_clocksource_read() callers (i.e. sched_clock())
