Just trying to give a good looking format :-). Not sure whether it
really is or not.

Actually it's not a fix. It just removes a check. It checks whether
this process is movable to other processor or not. And this check is
made from inside the find_lowest_cpu function. Thats why, the check
before calling find_lowest_cpu has been removed. Is my explanation
okay?

Thanks,
Rakib
