Subject[PATCH 3/3] sched: do not consider SCHED_IDLE tasks to be cache hot
Date
This patch adds a check in task_hot to return if the task has SCHED_IDLE
policy. SCHED_IDLE tasks have very low weight, and when run with regular
weight tasks, are typically scheduled many milliseconds apart. There is no
benefit from considering SCHED_IDLE tasks cache hot for load balancing.
