nohz: Track last do_timer() cpu
The previous patch which limits the sleep time to the maximum deferment time of the time keeping clocksource has some limitations on SMP machines: if all CPUs are idle then for all CPUs the maximum sleep time is limited. Solve this by keeping track of which cpu had the do_timer() duty assigned last and limit the sleep time only for this cpu.
