[PATCH v3 2/2] sched: fix update NOHZ_IDLE flag

From: Vincent Guittot
Date: Fri Feb 08 2013 - 13:06:17 EST

The function nohz_kick_needed modifies NOHZ_IDLE flag that is used to update
the nr_busy_cpus of the sched_group.
When the sched_domain are updated (during the boot or because of the unplug of
a CPUs as an example) a null_domain is attached to CPUs. We have to test
likely(!on_null_domain(cpu) first in order to detect such intialization step
and to not modify the NOHZ_IDLE flag
