sched/fair: Remove effective_load()

The effective_load() function was only used by the NUMA balancing
code, and not by the regular load balancing code. Now that the
NUMA balancing code no longer uses it either, get rid of it.

- * effective_load() calculates the load change as seen from the root_task_group
- *
- * Adding load to a group doesn't make a group heavier, but can cause movement
- * of group shares between cpus. Assuming the shares were perfectly aligned one
- * can calculate the shift in shares.
- *
- * Calculate the effective load difference if @wl is added (subtracted) to @tg
- * on this @cpu and results in a total addition (subtraction) of @wg to the
- * total group weight.
- *
- * Given a runqueue weight distribution (rw_i) we can compute a shares
- * distribution (s_i) using:
- *
- * s_i = rw_i / \Sum rw_j (1)
- *
- * Suppose we have 4 CPUs and our @tg is a direct child of the root group and
- * has 7 equal weight tasks, distributed as below (rw_i), with the resulting
- * shares distribution (s_i):
- *
- * rw_i = { 2, 4, 1, 0 }
- * s_i = { 2/7, 4/7, 1/7, 0 }
- *
- * As per wake_affine() we're interested in the load of two CPUs (the CPU the
- * task used to run on and the CPU the waker is running on), we need to
- * compute the effect of waking a task on either CPU and, in case of a sync
- * wakeup, compute the effect of the current task going to sleep.
- *
- * So for a change of @wl to the local @cpu with an overall group weight change
- * of @wl we can compute the new shares distribution (s'_i) using:
- *
- * s'_i = (rw_i + @wl) / (@wg + \Sum rw_j) (2)
- *
- * Suppose we're interested in CPUs 0 and 1, and want to compute the load
- * differences in waking a task to CPU 0. The additional task changes the
- * weight and shares distributions like:
- *
- * rw'_i = { 3, 4, 1, 0 }
- * s'_i = { 3/8, 4/8, 1/8, 0 }
- *
- * We can then compute the difference in effective weight by using:
- *
- * dw_i = S * (s'_i - s_i) (3)
- *
- * Where 'S' is the group weight as seen by its parent.
- *
- * Therefore the effective change in loads on CPU 0 would be 5/56 (3/8 - 2/7)
- * times the weight of the group. The effect on CPU 1 would be -4/56 (4/8 -
- * 4/7) times the weight of the group.
