Sure ! It was a quick hack mainly to solicit feedback.

No. I don't think we can assume that. But I was choosing to ignore it mainly to
reduce the overhead of a perf intr in general. A subsequent real interrupt could
go thru thru the gyrations of preemption etc.

Nothing ATM. At the time of NPS platform upstreaming, Noam had proposed a patch to
enable work as part of NO_HZ_FULL support on ARC for NPS. That part of patchseries
didn't get merged and then life took over...

I'm attaching it here, can be added to ARC I suppose after a bit of deuglification
for #ifdef'ery.

Although I'm sure it is, can you please explain how irq_work is relevant in the
context of this patch. Even w/o the TIF_NEED_RESCHED, the generic intr return
could still invoke the irq_work for perf.

I remember from my investigations at the time that it was originally needed for
perf_event_do_pending() to do stuff in IRQ context. It was later factored out as
generic irq_work facility for no_hz and printk !

Subject: [PATCH] ARC: Support arch_irq_work_raise() via self IPIs

This will allow the scheduler tick to be restarted.
It is used if CONFIG_NO_HZ_FULL.
