Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  1. when hot plug vcpu, KVM will call kvm_write_tsc set the new vcpu's
  tsc_offset to host tsc.  The new vcpu's tsc_offsets is greatly
  different from preallocated vcpu's tsc_offset.

  2. For redhat 6.x, the vm will show warning and turn off TSC clock.
  kernel: CPU 1 got hotplugged
  kernel: kvm-clock: cpu 1, msr 0:282367c1, secondary cpu clock
  kernel: TSC synchronization [CPU#0 -> CPU#1]:
  kernel: Measured 150076598781 cycles TSC warp between CPUs, turning off TSC clock.
  kernel: Marking TSC unstable due to check_tsc_sync_source failed

  3. I think should set the new vcpu's tsc_offset to
