(Nearly) full tickless operation in 3.10
Has this real impact, or "only" less code in the future? (Of course, that is not only, but as a kernel *user*, I'd like to know what's innit for me ;-) )
Is this very useful?

Less code with the same functionality and performance usually means happy developers, smaller code size in memory, and, on the long term, less bugs (yes, there are always exceptions).
