Good catch for this_runnable_load, indeed there is a problem is
local_group is not allowed

You should put that test above at upper level in the while (sd) loop
or even before the while(sd) loop as there is even no need to start
this while loop in this case. There is no need to call
find_idlest_group if there is no cpu allowed and no group to find.
Then, you can keep the current behavior of find_idlest_group() which
return null if there no best group than the local one

The " new_cpu = cpu" above should be put before the while(sd) loop
like in Peter's proposal
