Please always try and Cc the people who touched that code last; for the
idle_balance bits commit 4486edd12b5a ("sched/fair: Implement fast
idling of CPUs when the system is partially loaded") gives a fair clue
as to who that would be.

Here 3882ec643997 ("nohz: Use IPI implicit full barrier against
rq->nr_running r/w") might be a clue.

Also, this is wrong, it breaks NOHZ_FULL.
