this patch is different from balance policy, the powersave still try to
move 2 busy tasks into one cpu core on Intel cpu. It is just don't keep
packing in cpu core, like if there are 2 half busy tasks in one cpu
core, with this patch, each of SMT thread has one half busy task,
without this patch, 2 half busy task are packed into one thread.

The removed balance policy just pack one busy task per cpu core. Yes,
the 'balance' policy has its meaning. but that is different.

Thanks Alex
