Subject[PATCH 4.9 069/148] sched/fair: Make select_idle_cpu() more aggressive
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Peter Zijlstra <peterz@infradead.org>


[ Upstream commit 4c77b18cf8b7ab37c7d5737b4609010d2ceec5f0 ]

Kitsunyan reported desktop latency issues on his Celeron 887 because
of commit:

1b568f0aabf2 ("sched/core: Optimize SCHED_SMT")

... even though his CPU doesn't do SMT.

The effect of running the SMT code on a !SMT part is basically a more
aggressive select_idle_cpu(). Removing the avg condition fixed things
for him.

I also know FB likes this test gone, even though other workloads like
having it.

For now, take it out by default, until we get a better idea.
