Subject[PATCH 26/27] sched: Avoid overloading CPUs on a preferred NUMA node
Date
This patch replaces find_idlest_cpu_node with task_numa_find_cpu.
find_idlest_cpu_node has two critical limitations. It does not take the
scheduling class into account when calculating the load and it is unsuitable
for using when comparing loads between NUMA nodes.

task_numa_find_cpu uses similar load calculations to wake_affine() when
selecting the least loaded CPU within a scheduling domain common to the
source and destimation nodes. It avoids causing CPU load imbalances in
the machine by refusing to migrate if the relative load on the target
CPU is higher than the source CPU.
