This option keeps the tick running periodically at a constant
rate, even when the CPU doesn't need it.
config NO_HZ_IDLE
bool "Idle dynticks system (tickless idle)"
depends on !ARCH_USES_GETTIMEOFFSET && GENERIC_CLOCKEVENTS
select NO_HZ_COMMON
help
This option enables a tickless idle system: timer interrupts
will only trigger on an as-needed basis when the system is idle.
This is usually interesting for energy saving.
Most of the time you want to say Y here.

Adaptively try to shutdown the tick whenever possible, even when
the CPU is running tasks. Typically this requires running a single
task on the CPU. Chances for running tickless are maximized when
the task mostly runs in userspace and has few kernel activity.
You need to fill up the nohz_full boot parameter with the
desired range of dynticks CPUs.
This is implemented at the expense of some overhead in user <-> kernel
transitions: syscalls, exceptions and interrupts. Even when it's
dynamically off.
Say N.

bool "Force context tracking"
depends on CONTEXT_TRACKING
default y if !NO_HZ_FULL
help
The major pre-requirement for full dynticks to work is to
support the context tracking subsystem. But there are also
other dependencies to provide in order to make the full
dynticks working.
This option stands for testing when an arch implements the
context tracking backend but doesn't yet fullfill all the
requirements to make the full dynticks feature working.
Without the full dynticks, there is no way to test the support
for context tracking and the subsystems that rely on it: RCU
userspace extended quiescent state and tickless cputime
accounting. This option copes with the absence of the full
dynticks subsystem by forcing the context tracking on all
CPUs in the system.
Say Y only if you're working on the development of an
architecture backend for the context tracking.
Say N otherwise, this option brings an overhead that you
don't want in production.
config NO_HZ
bool "Old Idle dynticks config"
depends on !ARCH_USES_GETTIMEOFFSET && GENERIC_CLOCKEVENTS
help
This is the old config entry that enables dynticks idle.
We keep it around for a little while to enforce backward
compatibility with older config files.
config HIGH_RES_TIMERS
bool "High Resolution Timer Support"
depends on !ARCH_USES_GETTIMEOFFSET && GENERIC_CLOCKEVENTS
select TICK_ONESHOT
help
This option enables high resolution timer support. If your
hardware is not capable then this option only increases
the size of the kernel image.
