BTW I was considering using mod_timer_pinned() from these networking
timers (ie sk_reset_timer())

get_nohz_timer_target() sounds cool for laptop users, but is one cause
for bad responses to DDOS, when the selected cpu gets stressed.

This is the reason I used mod_timer_pinned() in commit 789f558cfb3680ae
("tcp/dccp: get rid of central timewait timer")
