Reject a simple and partly tested solution because of a untested guess?
Even the old double bias is better in few sceanrios, it doesn't mean it
is good
in theory.

I don't know the result on big machine too. but imbalance_pct of
is designed for balance bias on different domain level. We should tune
that instead
of bias on an random long term load.

Before runnable avg introduction, cpu_load idx make sense on history
load tracking.
With runnable avg, big instant load means tasks had been running for
long time. so
we already counted the task history.
As to the cpu history load, if it caused by task moving to other cpu, it
isn't right to
still count their load on old cpu.
