Subject[RFC PATCH v1 3/3] sched: loadbalancer hacks for forced packing of tasks
Date
Pack more tasks in a group so as to reduce number of CPUs
used to run the work in the system.

Just for load balancing purpose, assume the group capacity
has been increased by group_capacity_bump_pct()

Hacks:

o Make non-idle cpus also perform powersave balance so
that we can pull more tasks into the group
o Increase group capacity for calculation
o Increase load-balancing threshold so that even if a
group is loaded by group_capacity_bump_pct, consider
it balanced

*** RFC patch for discussion ***
