Subject: [PATCH 2/2] nohz: Move full nohz kick to its own IPI

Now that we have smp_queue_function_single() which can be used to
safely queue IPIs when interrupts are disabled and without worrying
about concurrent callers, lets use it for the full dynticks kick to
notify a CPU that it's exiting single task mode.

This unbloats a bit the scheduler IPI that the nohz code was abusing
for its cool "callable anywhere/anytime" properties.
