Why not calling tick_nohz_start_idle() from there? This is going to
simplify the rest, you won't need to call tick_nohz_idle_go_idle()
from places that don't want to stop the tick and you can then remove
the stop_tick argument.

Ah I see you're keeping tick_nohz_idle_enter() around because of the callsite
in xen. It looks like a hack (from the xen part), I'll need to have a look at
it, just a note for myself...

Thanks.
