From: "Maxiwell S. Garcia" <maxiwell@linux.ibm.com>

The clock move makes the guest knows about the paused time between the
'stop' and 'migrate' commands. This is an issue in an already-paused
VM because some side effects, like process stalls, could happen
after migration.

So, this patch checks the runstate of guest in the pre_save handler and
do not re-reads the clock in case of paused state (cold migration).
