Subject[PATCH tip/core/rcu 29/55] nohz: Remove nohz_cpu_mask
Date
From: Shi, Alex <alex.shi@intel.com>

RCU no longer uses this global variable, nor does anyone else. This
commit therefore removes this variable. This reduces memory footprint
and also removes some atomic instructions and memory barriers from
the dyntick-idle path.
