Subject: [PATCH v7 01/24] tick/nohz: Move tick_nohz_full_mask declaration outside the #ifdef

tick_nohz_full_mask lists the CPUs that are nohz_full. This is only
needed when CONFIG_NO_HZ_FULL is defined. tick_nohz_full_cpu() allows
a specific CPU to be tested against the mask, and evaluates to false
when CONFIG_NO_HZ_FULL is not defined.

The resctrl code needs to pick a CPU to run some work on, a new helper
prefers housekeeping CPUs by examining the tick_nohz_full_mask. Hiding
the declaration behind #ifdef CONFIG_NO_HZ_FULL forces all the users to
be behind an ifdef too.

Move the tick_nohz_full_mask declaration, this lets callers drop the
ifdef, and guard access to tick_nohz_full_mask with IS_ENABLED() or
something like tick_nohz_full_cpu().

The definition does not need to be moved as any callers should be
removed at compile time unless CONFIG_NO_HZ_FULL is defined.
