Subject[patch 1/2] sched: fix load average accounting vs. cpu hotplug
The new load average code clears rq->calc_load_active on
CPU_ONLINE. That's wrong as the new onlined CPU might have got a
scheduler tick already and accounted the delta to the stale value of
the time we offlined the CPU.

Clear the value when we cleanup the dead CPU instead.

Also move the update of the calc_load_update time for the newly online
CPU to CPU_UP_PREPARE to avoid that the CPU plays catch up with the
stale update time value.
