           Summary: Bad cpuTime retrieved from Sys::Virt::Domain->get_info
           Product: Fedora Extras

Description of problem:
I tried the API on a AMD Athlon(tm) XP 3000+, I got bad values with some
negative one for the cpuTime of a domain.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run a server with some xen domains
2. Try the example included in the package:
3. Observe the "cpuTime" values
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:
I search the sources and I found this value is in fact unsigned long long value
in libvirt library to represent nanoseconds (cf
http://libvirt.org/html/libvirt-libvirt.html#virDomainInfo). I didn't try on a
64 bits arch but I think the it could work on it.

I managed to obtain the expected results by patching the sources: I edit Virt.xs
from the source and changed the line 359 from:
      hv_store (RETVAL, "cpuTime", 7, newSViv(info.cpuTime), 0);
      hv_store (RETVAL, "cpuTime", 7, newSVnv(info.cpuTime), 0);

So the unsigned long long is read as a float scalar and not an integer scalar.
