Subject[PATCH -v8a 4/7] sched: Add yield_to(task, preempt) functionality
From: Mike Galbraith <efault@gmx.de>

Currently only implemented for fair class tasks.

Add a yield_to_task method() to the fair scheduling class. allowing the
caller of yield_to() to accelerate another thread in it's thread group,
task group.

Implemented via a scheduler hint, using cfs_rq->next to encourage the
target being selected. We can rely on pick_next_entity to keep things
fair, so noone can accelerate a thread that has already used its fair
share of CPU time.

This also means callers should only call yield_to when they really
mean it. Calling it too often can result in the scheduler just
ignoring the hint.
