I'm throwing around a PV domU over a bunch of test servers with live
migrate now, and in between the kernel logging, I'm seeing this:

This always happens on every *first* live migrate that I do after
starting the domU.

OTOH, With v1 I've indeed also observed the 'leftover' time jump on the
first line when resuming. It didn't happen always, but it seems to not
happen anymore at all now, so that's good.
