Since this is called outside interrupt context, ksoftirqd task is always woken
up to serve the TIMER softirq. Given that, this CPU exited idle due to an
interrupt, we could probably check this condition and raise the softirq prior
to irq_exit. To make the discussion easier, providing the diff. This will make
sure that TIMER softirq is served after serving the IRQ and avoids waking
ksoftirqd. This should also cover the case, Thoms mentioned in the other
email.
