[libvirt] [PATCH 0/4] Add timer element to domain clock elements

This patchset implements the XML described in 


(with one small change - the tickpolicy 'none' was changed to 'delay'
after a later discussion).

It also implements the qemu backend for those timer types that qemu supports.

One thing to point out to 'early adopters': qemu's driftfix option is
currently broken, so if you try to specify a tickpolicy=catchup in an
rtc timer, the domain will give an error on startup. A patch for that
has been posted by Zach Amsden to qemu-devel:


Backends for other hypervisors have not been implemented. That is left
as an exercise for later ;-)
