Subject[PATCH 17/32] rcu: Restart tick if we enqueue a callback in a nohz/cpuset CPU
Date
If we enqueue an rcu callback, we need the CPU tick to stay
alive until we take care of those by completing the appropriate
grace period.

Thus, when we call_rcu(), send a self IPI that checks rcu_needs_cpu()
so that we restore a periodic tick behaviour that can take care of
everything.
