Subject[PATCH 06/24] nohz: Basic full dynticks interface
Date
Start with a very simple interface to define full dynticks CPU:
use a boot time option defined cpumask through the "full_nohz="
kernel parameter.

Make sure you keep at least one CPU outside this range to handle
the timekeeping.

Also full_nohz= must match rcu_nocb= value.
