From: Cyril Bur <cyril.bur@au1.ibm.com>

This patch adds basic support for the VTB.

The Virtual Time Base (VTB) is a 64-bit incrementing counter.
Virtual Time Base increments at the same rate as the Time Base until its value
becomes 0xFFFF_FFFF_FFFF_FFFF (2 64 - 1); at the next increment its value
becomes 0x0000_0000_0000_0000. There is no interrupt or other indication when
this occurs.

The operation of the Virtual Time Base has the following additional
1. Loading a GPR from the Virtual Time Base has no effect on the accuracy of
the Virtual Time Base.
2. Copying the contents of a GPR to the Virtual Time Base replaces the
contents of the Virtual Time Base with the contents of the GPR.
