Subject[patch 14/15] sched: return unused runtime on voluntary sleep
When a local cfs_rq blocks we return the majority of its remaining quota to the
global bandwidth pool for use by other runqueues.

We do this only when the quota is current and there is more than
min_cfs_rq_quota [1ms by default] of runtime remaining on the rq.

In the case where there are throttled runqueues and we have sufficient
bandwidth to meter out a slice, a second timer is kicked off to handle this
delivery, unthrottling where appropriate.

Using a 'worst case' antagonist which executes on each cpu
for 1ms before moving onto the next on a fairly large machine:

no quota generations:
197.47 ms /cgroup/a/cpuacct.usage
199.46 ms /cgroup/a/cpuacct.usage
205.46 ms /cgroup/a/cpuacct.usage
198.46 ms /cgroup/a/cpuacct.usage
208.39 ms /cgroup/a/cpuacct.usage
Since we are allowed to use "stale" quota our usage is effectively bounded by
the rate of input into the global pool and performance is relatively stable.

with quota generations [1s increments]:
119.58 ms /cgroup/a/cpuacct.usage
119.65 ms /cgroup/a/cpuacct.usage
119.64 ms /cgroup/a/cpuacct.usage
119.63 ms /cgroup/a/cpuacct.usage
119.60 ms /cgroup/a/cpuacct.usage
The large deficit here is due to quota generations (/intentionally/) preventing
us from now using previously stranded slack quota. The cost is that this quota
becomes unavailable.

with quota generations and quota return:
200.09 ms /cgroup/a/cpuacct.usage
200.09 ms /cgroup/a/cpuacct.usage
198.09 ms /cgroup/a/cpuacct.usage
200.09 ms /cgroup/a/cpuacct.usage
200.06 ms /cgroup/a/cpuacct.usage
By returning unused quota we're able to both stably consume our desired quota
and prevent unintentional overages due to the abuse of slack quota from
previous quota periods (especially on a large machine).
