SubjectRe: [patch 6/12] sched: fix select_idle_sibling()
From
Date

sched: fix select_idle_sibling()

Don't bother with selection when the current cpu is idle. Recent load
balancing changes also make it no longer necessary to check wake_affine()
success before returning the selected sibling, so we now always use it.
