Subject[RFC PATCH v2 4/7] sched: favour lower logical cpu number for sched_mc balance
Date
Just in case two groups have identical load, prefer to move load to lower
logical cpu number rather than the present logic of moving to higher logical
number.

find_busiest_group() tries to look for a group_leader that has spare capacity
to take more tasks and freeup an appropriate least loaded group. Just in case
there is a tie and the load is equal, then the group with higher logical number
is favoured. This conflicts with user space irqbalance daemon that will move
interrupts to lower logical number if the system utilisation is very low.
