Yes probably. I have been influenced by the "nohz" filename but
kernel/sched/sched.h is better

I didn't want to expose the 2 parameters of nohz_idle_balance in
do_idle() and especially the enum cpu_idle_type but it seems that it
is already available so I can probably call
nohz_idle_balance(cpu_rq(cpu), CPU_IDLE); directly
