Thanks Srivatsa and Sergey for the tests.

Ingo, Peterz, can you please queue this appended patch for 3.3?

thanks,

Subject: sched, nohz: fix nohz cpu idle load balancing state with cpu hotplug

With the recent nohz scheduler changes, rq's nohz flag 'NOHZ_TICK_STOPPED'
and its associated state doesn't get cleared immediately after the
cpu exits idle. This gets cleared as part of the next tick seen on that cpu.

For the cpu offline support, we need to clear this state manually. Fix it by
registering a cpu notifier, which clears the nohz idle load balance
state for this rq explicitly during the CPU_DYING notification.

There won't be any nohz updates for that cpu, after the CPU_DYING notification.
But lets be extra paranoid and skip updating the nohz state in the
select_nohz_load_balancer() if the cpu is not in active state anymore.
