Subject[RFC PATCH 7/9] housekeeping: Use own boot option, independant from nohz
Date
The housekeeping is currently driven by nohz_full where any CPU that
is not in the nohz_full range is considered as a housekeeper. This is
a design mistake because nohz is just a detail among all the existing
isolation features. Nohz shouldn't imply anything else than tick related
things.

We rather want to drive all the isolation features from the housekeeping
subsystem which is responsible for all the work that can be either
affined (unpinned workqueues, timers, kthreads, ...) or offloaded
(scheduler tick, ...).

Let's start with a boot option to define the housekeepers. We should be
able to further enhance that through cpusets.
