From: Michael Wang <wangyun@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

In real world, tick_nohz_idle_enter() will be invoked by idle thread 
when the cpu change from active to idle, and will only be invoked
again after tick_nohz_idle_exit() was invoked by idle thread when
cpu is going to recover, invoke it multiple times in one idle may
cause unexpected troubles.

The patch add a check to avoid invoke tick_nohz_idle_enter() again
after idle.
