Subject: [PATCH 23/24] nohz: Don't stop the tick if posix cpu timers are running

If either a per thread or a per process posix cpu timer is running,
don't stop the tick.

TODO: restart the tick if it is stopped and a posix cpu timer is
enqueued. Check we probably need a memory barrier for the per
process posix timer that can be enqueued from another task
of the group.
