Hello, Frederic,

I have the following queued. Shall I port yours on top of mine, or is
there an issue with mine?

Thanx, Paul

rcu: Bind grace-period kthreads to non-NO_HZ_FULL CPUs

Binding the grace-period kthreads to the timekeeping CPU resulted in
significant performance decreases for some workloads. For more detail,
see:

https://lkml.org/lkml/2014/6/3/395 for benchmark numbers

https://lkml.org/lkml/2014/6/4/218 for CPU statistics

It turns out that it is necessary to bind the grace-period kthreads
to the timekeeping CPU only when all but CPU 0 is a nohz_full CPU
on the one hand or if CONFIG_NO_HZ_FULL_SYSIDLE=y on the other.
In other cases, it suffices to bind the grace-period kthreads to the
set of non-nohz_full CPUs.

This commit therefore creates a tick_nohz_not_full_mask that is the
complement of tick_nohz_full_mask, and then binds the grace-period
kthread to the set of CPUs indicated by this new mask, which covers
the CONFIG_NO_HZ_FULL_SYSIDLE=n case. The CONFIG_NO_HZ_FULL_SYSIDLE=y
case still binds the grace-period kthreads to the timekeeping CPU.
