sched/fair: Prune, fix and simplify the nohz_balancer_kick() comment block

The comment block for that function lists the heuristics for
triggering a nohz kick, but the most recent ones (blocked load
updates, misfit) aren't included, and some of them (LLC nohz logic,
asym packing) are no longer in sync with the code.

The conditions are either simple enough or properly commented, so get
rid of that list instead of letting it grow.
