Subject[PATCH V2] tick: Make sleep length calculation more accurate
Date
The sleep_length is computed in the tick_nohz_stop_sched_tick function but it
is used later in the code with in between the local irq enabled.

cpu_idle_loop
tick_nohz_idle_enter [ exits with local irq enabled ]
__tick_nohz_idle_enter
tick_nohz_stop_sched_tick
...

arch_cpu_idle
menu_select [ uses here 'sleep_length' ]
...

Between the computation of the sleep length and its usage, some interrupts
may occur, making the sleep length shorter than actually it is because of the
interrupt processing, or different if the timer itself expired.

This patch fixes that by moving the sleep_length computation in the
tick_nohz_get_sleep_length function and using the tick device's next_event.

As the sleep_length field is no longer needed, it is removed from the
tick_sched structure.
