Subject[PATCH 1/5] sched: fix capacity calculations for SMT4
When calculating capacity we use the following calculation:

capacity = DIV_ROUND_CLOSEST(power, SCHED_LOAD_SCALE);

In SMT2, power will be 1178/2 (provided we are not scaling power with
freq say) and SCHED_LOAD_SCALE will be 1024, resulting in capacity
being 1.

With SMT4 however, power will be 1178/4, hence capacity will end up as
0.

Fix this by ensuring capacity is always at least 1 after this
calculation.

I'm not sure this is the correct fix but this works for me.
