Subject[111/115] sched: Fix volanomark performance regression
2.6.32-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
Commit: b5482cfa1c95a188b3054fa33274806add91bbe5 upstream

Commit fab4762 triggers excessive idle balancing, causing a ~30% loss in
volanomark throughput. Remove idle balancing throttle reset.
