SubjectRe: [PATCH v9 4/5] tick/nohz_full: Ensure quiet_vmstat() is called on exit to user-mode when the idle tick is stopped

This is missing your Signed-off-by:

Also can you make this (and also the conditional vmstat_shepherd ignore
nohz_full CPUs and also the in-place local arming) a Kconfig option perhaps?
Something like CONFIG_FLUSH_WORK_ON_RESUME_USER (depend on NO_HZ_FULL). I'm using
"WORK" instead of "VMSTAT" so that we can even add more stuff there later.

This way I'll stop worrying about the potential HPC users who may not care about
the occasional interrupt and prefer to have reasonably fast syscalls.

Then after some time if nobody complains, we can remove the Kconfig entry.

Thanks.
