[PATCH v2] hwsim tests: vm: add optional time-warp

Johannes Berg johannes at sipsolutions.net

From: Johannes Berg <johannes.berg at intel.com>

To test the code under the influence of time jumps, add the option
(--timewarp) to the VM tests to reset the clock all the time, which
makes the wall clock time jump speed up 20x, causing gettimeofday()
to be unreliable for timeout calculations.
