Hi,

resched_forceidle_sibling depends on tick, but there could be no tick in 1s(scheduler_tick_max_derferment) after
entering nohz_full mode.
And when enable nohz_full, cpu will enter nohz_full mode frequently when *there is only one long running local task*.
That means the siblings rescheduling would be delayed much more than sched_slice(), could be unfair and result in
big latency.

Should we restrict cpu with forced-idle sibling entering nohz_full mode by adding specific flag and checking it before
stop tick?

Or we can do rescheduling on siblings in task_tick_idle by checking starvation time? :)

Thx
Regard,
Jiang
