Brendan doesn't work for ARM anymore although he might still follow this 
discussion.

So you think that we can do the time_after(jiffies, 
rq->last_blocked_load_update_tick) check in update_sg_lb_stats() and 
possibly the update_blocked_averages() for all the cpus in the sd and 
then only update nohz.next_update in update_sd_lb_stats(). Let me try 
this ...
