virtualbox: changing system time in vm

sometimes, changing system time is neccessary to help development in the vm. To do that in the virtualbox guest, we have to run some script in the host,

VBoxManage setextradata [vmname] “VBoxInternal/Devices/VMMDev/0/Config/GetHostTimeDisabled” “1”

then reboot host

once booted, change system time in vm and it will work.
