independent_wallclock=1 on the kernel command line should fix this too.

Should we change the default? I guess today's common usage model for Xen
has worked out a little differently from what we imagined way back, and
some of the defaults are probably wrong.

If this is going to be the default (ntp in every domain) then I won't bother modifying xenlinux to propagate domain0 adjtime statistics to Xen: it's tedious and pointless if noone is going to use it. But slaving domU clocks makes sense to me -- perhaps it's just an issue of user education/awareness?
