So, move it to the top of build_sched_domains(), and then for
every "const struct cpumask *cpu_map" argument, create a
temporary cpu_map so we can mask out the nohz_full cores?

The problem is, we already allow partition_sched_domains()
to override "isolcpus=", so it seems appropriate that you should
be able to override "nohz_full=" in the same way, which my
current patch (v6) does.

So I think the proposed solution is certainly no worse than what
we have now in terms of a future migration to cpusets.
