Are we some times passing a wrong candidate?
Lets say the first cpu balanced is false and we set the swap_candidate,
but find the second cpu(/or later cpus) to be idle or has lesser effective load, then we
could be sending the task that is running on the first cpu as the swap
candidate.

Then would the preferred cpu and swap_candidate match?
