Well, the older interface wasn't actually working, which made it
moderately suboptimal :)

But that is fixed by the first patch of the two, so perhaps the second
ought to be conditional on CONFIG_NO_HZ_FULL since it's only really
fixing a real bug there?

Unless we can contrive some way to do the rcu_eqs_enter/exit only on
the paths to/from userspace, and *not* when we loop in the kernel to
handle interrupts (etc.) and immediately re-enter the guest without
returning? That's somewhat non-trivial though...
