Seems OK too here.

Yes, really feels slower, but in the two configurations as you write.
Then this is a matter of convention, do not know which version is more
"correct" or "natural", but this is coherent in the two modes (HZ and
NO_HZ).

Do you plan to push this one to upstream/stable, or do you plan further
modifications?


Thanks for your patches,
