[PATCH v1] nohz: Restart tick before do softirq

From: chenshiyan
Date: Wed Jan 20 2021 - 23:48:19 EST

When the cpu is continuously idle, tick_irq_exit() will count next tick
expiry with maybe several periodic ticks, but if it enters softirq
before next tick, invoke_softirq() is called before tick_irq_exit(),
there will be no ticks during softirq. So with sched_clock_irqtime
closing, sirq is very low in nohz idle even if the softirq costs much
time beause of the sampling ticks missing(sirq will be much higher and
seem exact if the cpu is busy).
