Great! Thanks.

Is this sanity check also required when !dynticks_enabled() ? If so it would
be better to be just if (!dynticks_enabled())

This handler is redundant in !CONFIG_NO_IDLE_HZ ? If it is, as it appears to
be, this is unnecessary extra code below in !CONFIG_NO_IDLE_HZ adding unused
branches.

Otherwise, looks good!
