Lets move the assignment of weight down. Gcc may optimize, but I don't
want to rely on it.

Let's comment this better. Something like:

Only update if the process changes its state from whether it
can migrate or not.

Make the on_rq check first, and move the weight calculation below it.
Why calculate the weight if we don't plan on doing anything with it?

I rather say:

The process use to be able to migrate OR it can now migrate

Otherwise, the patch looks good.

Thanks,

P.S. I don't have any more trips in the near future, so I should be much
quicker in my responses ;-)
