Subject[PATCH v10 4/6] tick/nohz_full: Ensure quiet_vmstat() is called on exit to user-mode when the idle tick is stopped
From: Aaron Tomlin <atomlin@redhat.com>

For nohz full CPUs, we'd like the per-CPU vm statistics to be
synchronized when userspace is executing. Otherwise, the vmstat_shepherd
might queue a work item to synchronize them, which is undesired
intereference for isolated CPUs.

This patch syncs CPU-specific vmstat differentials, on return to
userspace, if CONFIG_FLUSH_WORK_ON_RESUME_USER is enabled and the tick
is stopped.

A trivial test program was used to determine the impact of the proposed
changes and under vanilla. The mlock(2) and munlock(2) system calls
was used solely to modify vmstat item 'NR_MLOCK'. The following is an
average count of CPU-cycles across the aforementioned system calls:

Vanilla Modified

Cycles per syscall 8461 8690 (+2.6%)
