I have three small patches against V4. The basic idea is,
- for load balance, don't pull/push task if its cookie does not match with
destination CPU's core cookie
- for task wakeup, select idle CPU whose core cookie matches with task's
cookie.

Sysbench MySQL result shows significant improvement for the overload cases.

Here is original data of coresched_v4(for comparison):

This may be the workload specific. Looking forward to more testing and comments.

Subject: [PATCH 1/3] sched/fair: don't migrate task if cookie not match

Load balance tries to move task from busiest CPU to the destination
CPU. When core scheduling is enabled, if the task's cookie does not
match with the destination CPU's core cookie, this task will be
skipped by this CPU. This mitigates the forced idle time on the
destination CPU.
