I could have sworn this was in mainline by now, but I recently was
looking for the code and can't find it there or in -tip either.

Thomas, are they just hiding somewhere I can't find?

Jon, you've been terribly patient and great about resubmitting these
patches over and over. If I'm not just being crazy and missing these
patches in front of my nose, are you still willing to submit them
again? I think they'll be quite useful as folks start pushing the NOHZ
idle times out.

thanks
-john
