It seems like it's usage is not really required, and could indeed beWay to much work to drop it. Also, I don't work to fork OVMF.
The ARM implementation of OVMF for Xen does the same thing and simply
always return the same value.
Alternatively, there's the PV clock which is available to PVH guestsWe might need to do that one day I guess, but right now it is just a
nice to have.
