sched/topology: Introduce a sysctl for Energy Aware Scheduling

In its current state, Energy Aware Scheduling (EAS) starts automatically
on asymmetric platforms having an Energy Model (EM). However, there are
users who want to have an EM (for thermal management for example), but
don't want EAS with it.

In order to let users disable EAS explicitly, introduce a new sysctl
called 'sched_energy_aware'. It is enabled by default so that EAS can
start automatically on platforms where it makes sense. Flipping it to 0
rebuilds the scheduling domains and disables EAS.
