sched/deadline: Fix wrap-around in DL heap

Current code in cpudeadline.c has a bug in re-heapifying when adding a
new element at the end of the heap, because a deadline value of 0 is
temporarily set in the new elem, then cpudl_change_key() is called
with the actual elem deadline as param.

However, the function compares the new deadline to set with the one
previously in the elem, which is 0. So, if current absolute deadlines
grew so much to have negative values as s64, the comparison in
cpudl_change_key() makes the wrong decision. Instead, as from
dl_time_before(), the kernel should handle correctly abs deadlines

This patch fixes the problem with a minimally invasive change that
forces cpudl_change_key() to heapify up in this case.
