Subject: [PATCH v16 05/13] Add try_stop_full_tick() API for NO_HZ_FULL

This API checks to see if the scheduler tick can be stopped,
and if so, stops it and returns 0; otherwise it returns an error.
This is intended for use with task isolation, where we will want to
be able to stop the tick synchronously when returning to userspace.
