    Please read the comment you have written above...

    Fair enough. It would vertainly help if you documented it. It would also
    help if you explained why it is so much worse to read the counter in the
    guest before *and* after the call, and assume that the clock time read
    happened right in the middle?

    That aside, what you are returning is something that *looks* like
    the virtual counter. What if the guest is using the physical counter,
    which is likely to be the case with nested virt? Do you expect the guest
    to always use the virtual counter? This isn't going to fly.

    It is not about testing. It is about taking the architecture into
    account.
    And ready or not doesn't come into play here. What you're defining here
    is
    an ABI, and it better be totally future proof.

    But if you want to test, help yourself to [1] and have fun!

    What you should do is handle it like a normal SMCCC failure.
