Great ideas, thank you!

I learned that the clock kernel parameter is deprecated, it is now
called clocksource. Still it is somehow gets ignored, and the kernel
uses acpi_pm instead.

  $ dmesg|grep clock
  Kernel command line: root=/dev/sda1 resume=/dev/sda2 rootdelay=1 ro
vga=787 clocksource=pit
  Measured 18368 cycles TSC warp between CPUs, turning off TSC clock.
  Switching to clocksource acpi_pm

Something is definitely going on here.

I also removed openntpd completely for now, and running the virtual
machine without it to see if it helps.
