Subject[PATCH 0/5] context_tracking: Remove TIF_NOHZ from 3 archs
Date
TIF_NOHZ is getting deprecated by static keys which avoid to invoke
syscall slow path on every syscall. So remove that flag from
architectures that don't need it anymore (or worse yet: that spuriously
triggered syscall slow path when it's not needed anymore).

We hope to remove TIF_NOHZ entirely in the long run (PPC, MIPS, SPARC).
If we want to be able to enable/disable nohz full dynamically on runtime,
freezing all tasks and iterating through the whole tasklist to set/clear
TIF_NOHZ doesn't sound very appealing.

arch/nohz

WARNING: untested on ARM 32

HEAD: 92502ebbf06ac37858694ed8f9d16fdb13ed0fe3

Thanks,
Frederic
