Knowing the sleep duration of CPUs, is known to be needed while selecting
the most energy efficient idle state for a CPU or a group of CPUs.

However, to be able to compute the sleep duration, we need to know at what
time the next expected wakeup is for the CPU. Therefore, let's export this
information via a new function, tick_nohz_get_next_wakeup(). Following
changes make use of it.

I'd add to the comment that this is to be invoked for idle CPUs only.
