 By default the RTC is driven by the host system time. This allows to use the
 RTC as accurate reference clock inside the guest, specifically if the host
 time is smoothly following an accurate external reference clock, e.g. via NTP.

 Enable @option{driftfix} (i386 targets only) if you experience time drift problems,
 specifically with Windows' ACPI HAL. This option will try to figure out how
