Subject[PATCH v4 03/20] push RT tasks
This patch adds an algorithm to push extra RT tasks off a run queue to
other CPU runqueues.

When more than one RT task is added to a run queue, this algorithm takes
an assertive approach to push the RT tasks that are not running onto other
run queues that have lower priority. The way this works is that the highest
RT task that is not running is looked at and we examine the runqueues on
the CPUS for that tasks affinity mask. We find the runqueue with the lowest
prio in the CPU affinity of the picked task, and if it is lower in prio than
the picked task, we push the task onto that CPU runqueue.

We continue pushing RT tasks off the current runqueue until we don't push any
more. The algorithm stops when the next highest RT task can't preempt any
other processes on other CPUS.

TODO: The algorithm may stop when there are still RT tasks that can be
migrated. Specifically, if the highest non running RT task CPU affinity
is restricted to CPUs that are running higher priority tasks, there may
be a lower priority task queued that has an affinity with a CPU that is
running a lower priority task that it could be migrated to. This
patch set does not address this issue.

Note: checkpatch reveals two over 80 character instances. I'm not sure
that breaking them up will help visually, so I left them as is.
