Linux operates the HPET timer in legacy replacement mode, which means that the
periodic interrupt of the CMOS RTC is not delivered (qemu won't be able to use
/dev/rtc). Add support for HPET (/dev/hpet) as a replacement for the RTC; the
periodic interrupt is delivered via SIGIO and is handled in the same way as the
HPET must be explicitly enabled with -use-hpet.
Are there any downsides to using HPET? If not, I suggest making it the
default, in order to reduce complexity for the user.
- try to use HPET (unless -no-rtc selected)
- try to use RTC (unless -no-rtc selected)
- fallback to normal unix facilities
