Gregory Haskins pointed out to me that this logic is slightly wrong. I
originally wrote this patch before adding his "count" patch optimization.
I did not take into account that on finding a non RT queue, we may leave
on some extra bits because the clear_cpus is not preformed if count is
zero. And count gets set to zero here. Which means that we don't clean
up.

The fix is to check for lowest_cpus > 0 instead of count on finding an
non-RT runqueue. This lets us know that we need to clear the mask.
Otherwise, if lowest_cpus == 0, then we can return the mask untouched.
The proper bit would already be set, and the return of 1 will have
the rest of the algorithm use the first bit.

Below is the updated patch. The full series is at:

From: Steven Rostedt <srostedt@redhat.com>

This patch removes several cpumask operations by keeping track
of the first of the CPUS that is of the lowest priority. When
the search for the lowest priority runqueue is completed, all
the bits up to the first CPU with the lowest priority runqueue
is cleared.
