Subject[PATCH] sched: resched proper CPU on yield_to
Date
yield_to_task_fair() has code to resched the CPU of yielding task when the
intention is to resched the CPU of the task that is being yielded to.

Change here fixes the problem and also makes the resched conditional on
rq != p_rq.

I don't have a setup to test this code path. So, this is only compile tested
right now.
