Description Christopher Curran 2010-05-26 01:49:26 UTC
Description of problem:
New timers and timing management features have been added to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and RHEV 2.2. These features must be documented for the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

This will be implemented by expanding the existing timing section and modifying the content to use libvirt.

The libvirt timer spec is here:
