Subject[patch 2/6] sched, nohz: track nr_busy_cpus in the sched_group_power
Introduce nr_busy_cpus in the struct sched_group_power [Not in sched_group
because sched groups are duplicated for the SD_OVERLAP scheduler domain]
and for each cpu that enters and exits tickless, this parameter will
be updated in each scheduler group of the scheduler domain that this cpu
belongs to.

To avoid the frequent update of this state as the cpu enters
and exits tickless idle, the update of the stat during tickless exit is
delayed to the first timer tick that happens after the cpu becomes busy.
