Currently, the load_balance trigger will be called in timer for periodic
tick, or dynamic tick.
In periodic tick, the cpu is waked, so do load_balance is not cost much.
But in dynamic tick. we'd better do power policy suitable scenario
checking in nohz_kick_needed(), and then do nohz_balancer_kick on least
but non-idle cpu if possible. that reduce the idle cpu waking chance.

Any comments?
