sched/fair: Optimize find_idlest_cpu() when there is no choice

In the current find_idlest_group()/find_idlest_cpu() search we end up
calling find_idlest_cpu() in a sched_group containing only one CPU in
the end. Checking idle-states becomes pointless when there is no
alternative, so bail out instead.
