Bug Description

This is a request to enable CONFIG_NO_HZ_FULL=y in the linux-azure kernels(currently 4.15 and 4.18) in order to increase NVME disks performance.

The current CONFIG_NO_HZ configuration in linux-azure kernels is the following (tested on 4.15.0-1037, 4.15.0-1039 and 4.18.0-1011):

CONFIG_NO_HZ=y
CONFIG_NO_HZ_COMMON=y
# CONFIG_NO_HZ_FULL is not set
CONFIG_NO_HZ_IDLE=y
