Thank you :-)

If this is of interest, I keep a list tracking global IPI and global
task schedulers sources in the core kernel here:
https://github.com/gby/linux/wiki.

I plan to visit all these potential interference source to see if
something can be done to lower their effect on
isolated CPUs over time.

Right. The only purpose of the patch is to show the usefulness
of the previous patch in the series. It is not meant for mainline.

Thanks,
