nohz: Introduce arch_needs_cpu
commit 3c5d92a0cfb5103c0d5ab74d4ae6373d3af38148 upstream. Allow the architecture to request a normal jiffy tick when the system goes idle and tick_nohz_stop_sched_tick is called . On s390 the hook is used to prevent the system going fully idle if there has been an interrupt other than a clock comparator interrupt since the last wakeup. On s390 the HiperSockets response time for 1 connection ping-pong goes down from 42 to 34 microseconds. The CPU cost decreases by 27%.
