Subject[RFC PATCH v2 5/7] sched: nominate preferred wakeup cpu
Date
When the system utilisation is low and more cpus are idle,
then the process waking up from sleep should prefer to
wakeup an idle cpu from semi-idle cpu package (multi core
package) rather than a completely idle cpu package which
would waste power.

Use the sched_mc balance logic in find_busiest_group() to
nominate a preferred wakeup cpu.

This info can be sored in appropriate sched_domain, but
updating this info in all copies of sched_domain is not
practical. For now lets try with a global variable.
