If you migrate from 5.4.0 to 5.4.0 or from 5.4.0 to 5.4.1, the guest
will also start drifting. Do you expect migration to fail on all those
cases too?

If you are really concerned about the time drift as you say above, the
answer is "no". A guest that doesn't have the new fields on savevm will
start drifting as soon as it is migrated--it doesn't matter if it is a
forward, backward, or sideways migration.
