Subject: [PATCH 05/10] tick/nohz: Update nohz_full Kconfig help
Date: Thu, 13 May 2021 01:29:19 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210512232924.150322-6-frederic@kernel.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210512232924.150322-1-frederic@kernel.org>

CONFIG_NO_HZ_FULL behaves just like CONFIG_NO_HZ_IDLE by default.
Reassure distros about it.
