Subject[RFC PATCH v9 7/8] ptp: arm64: Enable ptp_kvm for arm64
Date
Currently in arm64 virtualization environment, there is no mechanism to
keep time sync between guest and host. Time in guest will drift compared
with host after boot up as they may both use third party time sources
to correct their time respectively. The time deviation will be in order
of milliseconds but some scenarios ask for higher time precision, like
in cloud envirenment, we want all the VMs running in the host aquire the
same level accuracy from host clock.

Use of kvm ptp clock, which choose the host clock source clock as a
reference clock to sync time clock between guest and host has been adopted
by x86 which makes the time sync order from milliseconds to nanoseconds.

This patch enable kvm ptp on arm64 and we get the similar clock drift as
found with x86 with kvm ptp.

Test result comparison between with kvm ptp and without it in arm64 are
as follows. This test derived from the result of command 'chronyc
sources'. we should take more cure of the last sample column which shows
the offset between the local clock and the source at the last measurement.

no kvm ptp in guest:

The dns1.synet.edu.cn is the network reference clock for guest and
120.25.115.20 is the network reference clock for host. we can't get the
clock error between guest and host directly, but a roughly estimated value
will be in order of hundreds of us to ms.

with kvm ptp in guest:
chrony has been disabled in host to remove the disturb by network clock.

The PHC0 is the ptp clock which choose the host clock as its source
clock. So we can be sure to say that the clock error between host and guest
is in order of ns.
