That makes a lot of sense. I think this is moving in the right
direction. I have a comment below though.

Am I right that from now on nohz_full= users will also have
to specify housekeeping= in order to get nohz_full working?
If that's correct, then won't this patch break nohz_full for
existing setups?

Also, I just give this series a try and got this:
