Subject[patch v7 14/21] sched: add power/performance balance allow flag
If a sched domain is idle enough for regular power balance, LBF_POWER_BAL
will be set, LBF_PERF_BAL will be clean. If a sched domain is busy,
their value will be set oppositely.

If the domain is suitable for power balance, but balance should not
be down by this cpu(this cpu is already idle or full), both of flags
are cleared to wait a suitable cpu to do power balance.
That mean no any balance, neither power balance nor performance balance
will be done on this cpu.

Above logical will be implemented by incoming patches.
