I'd vote no to that, I think - the first problem I see is that it doesn't
make very clear that it modifies the argument, which is the problem
Peter Z has been having from the beginning with some suggestions.
The second problem is that it sounds like it might be setting the
argument unconditionally to the nohz_full set, when in fact it's doing
a cpumask_or() to increase the set of cpus further.

<Slaps self on forehead> Thanks!

Now off to do some actual testing before sending the next patchset :-)
