[RHEL5.4]: Fix interaction between dom0 and NTP
Last modified: 2009-09-02 05:01:46 EDT
Description of problem:
Recently a patch was put into the upstream linux-2.6.18-xen.hg kernel:
Essentially, it makes sure that we don't discard the NTP sync when we update the Xen wallclock from dom0. It looks like we'll probably need this in RHEL-5, although I'm not entirely sure yet how to prove it's working or not. It was committed to upstream linux-2.6.18-xen.hg as c/s 832.
Yes, we want this changeset. It could even help fix some of our long-standing PV timer bugs...
