That patch does not apply cleanly on qemu (2.0.0+dfsg, from trusty).
There are changes in "kvmclock_pre_save" and "kvmclock_post_save",
there's only "kvmclock_vm_state_change" in 2.0.0.
Peeking at the 4 referenced patches on
the code changes are "about the same", so I'll concatenate those 4 and build

guest hangs after live migration due to tsc jump

Status in qemu source package in Trusty:
We have two identical Ubuntu servers running libvirt/kvm/qemu, sharing
a Gluster filesystem. Guests can be live migrated between them.
However, live migration often leads to the guest being stuck at 100%
for a while. In that case, the dmesg output for such a guest will show
(once it recovers): Clocksource tsc unstable (delta = 662463064082
ns). In this particular example, a guest was migrated and only after
11 minutes (662 seconds) did it become responsive again.
It seems that newly booted guests doe not suffer from this problem,
these can be migrated back and forth at will. After a day or so, the
problem becomes apparent. It also seems that migrating from server A
to server B causes much more problems than going from B back to A. If
necessary, I can do more measurements to qualify these observations.
The VM servers run Ubuntu 13.04 with these packages:
Kernel: 3.8.0-35-generic x86_64
Gluster-fs: 3.4.2 (libvirt access the images via the filesystem, not using
libgfapi yet as the Ubuntu libvirt is not linked against libgfapi).
The interconnect between both machines (both for migration and gluster) is
Both servers are synced to NTP and well within 1ms form one another.
Guests are either Ubuntu 13.04 or 13.10.
On the guests, the current_clocksource is kvm-clock.
The XML definition of the guests only contains: <clock offset='utc'/>
Now as far as I've read in the documentation of kvm-clock, it specifically
supports live migrations, so I'm a bit surprised at these problems. There isn't
all that much information to find on these issue, although I have found
postings by others that seem to have run into the same issues, but without a
