Yes it's a requirement for NOHZ_FULL to work. But you make me realize this
is tacit and isn't constrained anywhere in the code. I'm going to add
HAVE_IRQ_WORK_RAISE and replace the weak definition with a config
based.

I do it for CONFIG_GENERIC_ENTRY but the other architectures have their own
exit to user loop that I would need to audit and make sure that interrupts aren't
ever re-enabled before resuming to user and there is no possible rescheduling
point. I could manage to handle arm and arm64 but the others scare me:

$ git grep HAVE_CONTEXT_TRACKING
arch/csky/Kconfig: select HAVE_CONTEXT_TRACKING
arch/mips/Kconfig: select HAVE_CONTEXT_TRACKING
arch/powerpc/Kconfig: select HAVE_CONTEXT_TRACKING if PPC64
arch/riscv/Kconfig: select HAVE_CONTEXT_TRACKING
arch/sparc/Kconfig: select HAVE_CONTEXT_TRACKING

:-s
