To prepare the final fix for clock calibration issues with the in-kernel
PIT, we want to cache the offset between vmclock and the clock used by
the in-kernel PIT. So far, we only need to update it when the VM state
changes between running and stopped because we only read the in-kernel
PIT state while the VM is running.

Applied, thanks.
