Subject[RFC PATCH v2 16/17] sched: Wake up sibling if it has something to run
Date
During core scheduling, it can happen that the current rq selects a
non-tagged process while the sibling might be idling even though it
had something to run (because the sibling selected idle to match the
tagged process in previous tag matching iteration). We need to wake up
the sibling if such a situation arise.
