yes, if the nohz state is not cleared properly during offline, then the
issue can happen any time including cpu online etc.

Srivatsa, I thought CPU_PRI_SCHED_INACTIVE as INT_MAX for some reason
and was expecting sched_ilb_notifier() will be called after setting that
cpu as inactive. I am now using CPU_DYING which will be called from the
cpu going down.

Here is the v2 version of the fix. Can you folks please give it another
try?

Thanks.

Subject: sched, nohz: fix nohz cpu idle load balancing state with cpu hotplug

With the recent nohz scheduler changes, rq's nohz flag 'NOHZ_TICK_STOPPED'
and its associated state doesn't get cleared immediately after the
cpu exits idle. This gets cleared as part of the next tick seen on that cpu.

With the cpu offline, we need to clear this state manually. Fix it by
registering a cpu notifier which clears the nohz idle load balance
state for this rq explicitly.
