    You have a knack for confusing changelogs.. so basically you say:

    Restart the tick when we switch to idle.

    Now all that needs is an explanation of why..

    Also, please drop the whole cpuset_nohz_ stuff, this really isn't about
    cpusets, cpusets simly provide the interface, the functionality lives in
    the tick_nohz_ namespace.
